The Raise Your Banners festival is held in Kala Sangam and Bradford Cathedral and is a vibrant weekend of political song and arts. This biennial festival celebrates the struggles of ordinary – and extraordinary – people through, music, film, theatre, workshops and speakers.
One of the most exciting things about the festival is the incredible diversity of the events on offer, but within that diversity is the common thread that underlies the Raise Your Banners ethos – the way that political song, music and art gives voice to struggles for liberation, equality and justice, in defence of the environment, and for a better world.
Raise Your Banners draws people from across the UK and beyond to hear some of the finest performers of political music, to learn about the history of political song, to engage in debate and to meet others who share similar aspirations.
