As part of the Crossmyloof BREAD Festival, created by the Crossmyloof Bakery team, we're hosting an evening gig for over 18s. Songs of Protest and Hope, will feature Kathryn Joseph, Biff Smith and friends (A New International), Vinnie Blackwell (Trembling Bells) with Marco Rea (The Wellgreen), and Emily Scott (Modern Studies) and friends.

The festival will launch a number of Heritage Lottery funded activities to highlight the amazing philanthropic work of Neale Thomson in the 1840 and ‘50s.

A theme of the festival is ‘bread and roses’ and alludes to a political slogan ‘The worker must have bread, but she must have roses, too’. This inspired the song Bread and Roses[ by James Oppenheim, written in 1911. The slogan was an appeal for both fair wages and dignified conditions, and has enormous resonance for the lengths to which Neale Thomson went to reform the working conditions of journeyman bakers in the middle of the 19th century.
