Procession

The core of the Tolpuddle Martyrs’ Festival – for decades, long before there was a programme of music and talks, trades unionists gathered in Tolpuddle to march in commemoration of the Martyrs, their historical victories and the establishment of the Trades Union movement in the UK as a whole.

Gather with your union bloc or campaign group on Sunday 21 July from 14.00, along with your banners.
