A Night to Remember for the 75th Anniversary of the Return of the International Brigade’s British Battalion
A guest post from the comrades at Philosophy Football.
The red hot socialist R n’ B of Thee Faction will headline a spectacular show ‘No Pasaran’ which marks on Saturday 7 December the 75th anniversary of the return of the International Brigade’s British Battalion from the Spanish Civil War. It will be a fantastic gig: if you are a fan of Thee Faction’s music don’t miss it.
The rest of a superb line-up includes Maxine Peake, Mark Steel, Paul Mason, Francesca Beard, PanditG and Salma Yaqoob. Spoken word, comedy, red-hot socialist r n b, ideas and a dancefloor-filling DJ set. All brought together to mark the 75th anniversary of 7 December 1938 when the men and women of the International Brigade’s British Battalion docked at Newhaven then travelled by train to Victoria to be met by a crowd of thousands to celebrate their heroic stand against Fascism. 75 years on, Saturday 7 December 2013, ‘No Pasaran!’ Will be a night to remember.
The venue is superb too, Rich Mix is East London’s premier arts centre, superbly equipped for an event of this ambition, just 10 minutes walk from Liverpool Street or Old Street underground stations, almost opposite Shoreditch High Street overground station.

A note from Thee Faction: This will be the second of Philosophy Football’s events we’ve played at, having guested at their tremendous Stalingrad anniversary event last year. These nights are always amazing. The kind of person who likes us will love this night. The perfect mix of music and laughing and politics and dancing and polemic and drama and drinking and catching up with old comrades. You must come to this. It will sell out, so if you’re planning to come, book now.
