Tickets are now available to come and see Banner Theatre’s “In A Right State!” production, being hosted by York TUC at Scarcroft Primary School. Click here for ticket info.

Speakers at the event include Neil Foster (Policy & Campaigns Officer, TUC Yorkshire & Humber) and Leigh Wilks (President, York TUC). They will be present to talk about the upcoming campaign in the city and the national “Britain Needs A Payrise” demonstration in London. A coach from York has been organised by York TUC and tickets for the coach are also on sale – see for details.

Banner Theatre will be performing “In A Right State!” a mix of theatre and music aimed at highlighting the anti-austerity message and demonstrating that the savage cuts the country continues to face are not working!

Please come along and encourage your friends and family to attend. If you are a member of a union branch please ask your branch if they will consider paying for your ticket!

We look forward to seeing you there!

#18Oct – Save The Date!

York TUC has agreed to organise transport for activists wishing to attend the demonstration and rally on 18th October 2014 in London in support of the Britain Needs A Pay Rise campaign. We have previously organised on this issue in York with a stall on Parliament Street, and would urge as many as possible from across the city to attend. Transport will be by coach from York to Wembley Stadium and then Tube from Wembley to central London. Comfort breaks will be included.

Tickets will be available shortly on this site and we have allocated some of our limited budget to subsidising the cost of tickets for those not currently in employment – this will be operated on an honesty basis. We have applied to the TUC for financial support to try to keep the cost of seats as low as we can to enable as many as possible to attend.

If the initial coach sells out, please continue to express an interest as we can arrange a second coach if there is sufficient demand.

For further information on the campaign, see

We are also putting on an evening of entertainment involving some film and theatre one week prior to the demo on 11th October. The event will be held at Scarcroft School and tickets for this will also be available shortly from this site. It would be great to see you there!
