Rich Mix Arts Centre, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA

SATURDAY 9th MAY NIGHT OUT ON THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF VE DAY AND THE 1945 LABOUR LANDSLIDE THAT CREATED THE WELFARE STATE.

In association with the RMT, supported by the Fire Brigades Union. An evening of comedy, ideas, live music and poetry inspired by the hope that '45, represented. Two days after the 2015 General Election we'll be asking whatever happened to all the hope that created the NHS, nationalised the railways and rehoused those made homeless by the war?

A headlining stand-up set from the sublime Josie Long with the rebel verse of Michael Rosen, author of the 'Letter from a Curious Parent' column in the Guardian. And closing the show the incomparable 7-piece band Captain SKA purveyors of political ska guaranteed to get you thinking and dancing!.

Journalist and broadcaster Paul Mason with writer Owen Jones will together be in conversation with WW2 veteran, NHS Campaigner and author of Harry's Last Stand the agelessly hopeful Harry Leslie Smith. And from one of the key battlegrounds of the 2015 General Election, Scotland, Cat Boyd, co-founder of the Radical Independence Campaign discusses what the 2015 result means for Britain's Break-Up, hope or despair?
