Come and visit us at the theatre re-enactment of events from this day. We will have a stall set up with information on Southside Heritage and we will be gathering local memories.

January the 31st 1919 and 60 000 strikers, many soldiers returning from the trenches of France and facing extreme poverty, pour into George Square in Glasgow to protest against mass unemployment and having to work a fifty-seven hour week. To mark the centenary of this landmark battle, the 3 China’s theatre company are re-enacting the events that led towards this pivotal moment in Scottish history, showing the heroic events as well as the great Glasgow humour that saw them survive.
