SALFORD NUJ AND MARY QUAILE HOST TRIBUTE TO RADICAL THEATRE AND JOURNALISM
 

Star date: 3rd November 2018

NUJ FOUNDER AND GAIETY THEATRE CELEBRATED IN SPECIAL NIGHT

1907:  Northern Radicalism
Saturday November 10th 6pm-9pm free
Three Minute Theatre, Manchester

The Mary Quaile Club and the NUJ Manchester and Salford are hosting a special night on November 10th celebrating two radical events that took place in 1907 – the opening of the progressive Gaiety Theatre in Manchester and the founding of the NUJ. Speakers are the ace John Harding and Tim Gopsill.

Full details here...


1907 was a standout year in the history of northern radicalism. First up was suffragist Annie Horniman, who opened the country's first rep in Manchester, the Gaiety Theatre, which became one of the most progressive theatres in the country, staging stuff like Hobson's Choice and Hindle Wakes, promoting local drama and attracting new audiences including mill girls and trade unionists.

On Friday, 10th November, John Harding who has recently written Staging Life: The Story of the Manchester Playwrights (see previous Salford Star article – click here), will be speaking about Annie Horniman at a special night hosted by the Mary Quaile Club and the NUJ Manchester and Salford at The Three Minute Theatre in Affleck's Arcade.

Also in 1907, Harry Richardson, who wrote radical plays for the Gaiety Theatre, co-founded the National Union of Journalists, and on the night, Tim Gopsill, author of a Journalists; 100 Years of the NUJ, and Secretary of the London Freelance Branch of the NUJ will be talking about Harry's life and work, and its relevance to today.

"At this meeting we will be looking back at a dynamic period of northern radical history to remember how Annie Horniman and the Gaiety Theatre played a key role in the lives of activists like Harry Richardson, who not only wrote about the lives of Mancunians but made history with the founding of the NUJ" says Bernadette Hyland, co-founder of the Mary Quaile Club and NUJ member.

With two top speakers, it should be a really great event...

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT RENT ARREARS DOUBLE THAT OF NON-UNIVERSAL CREDIT TENANTS

Star date: 16th November 2018

INCREDIBLE ARREARS INDICTMENT OF UNIVERSAL CREDIT

In a new City West Housing report for Salford City Council, it is revealed that, in Salford, the percentage of tenants on Universal Credit and in rent arrears is over double that for tenants who are not on Universal Credit. The figure is 78% compared to 37%.

City West currently has 1109 tenants claiming Universal Credit, and the company states that "The overall rent collection rate for these tenants for 18/19 is 93.05%, which is significantly lower than our collection rate for all tenants." It's yet another shocking indictment of the controversial benefit system.
