12:00 PM – 4:00 PM



The South East Kent Trades Union Council (SEKTUC) has agreed to put on a play by the Banner Theatre company.

The show is called “FREE FOR ALL” and is a spirited and angry defence of one of our most treasured public services, the National Health Service

Based on interviews with a wide range of health professionals, our show celebrates the NHS by giving centre stage to the tidal wave of campaigning organisations fighting to defend it from corporate takeover.

With its unique fusion of songs, dynamic music, unique video footage and moving storytelling, “Free For All” pays tribute to a health service still rated the most efficient and successful in the world.
What they say about the show:
“This show is a must-see for all who believe in our publicly-owned NHS”
Len McCluskey General Secretary Unite the Union

“It was beautiful, brilliant, moving”.
Bernadette Grosse, UNITE Community, SOS NHS Derby
“Fantastically planned and performed. You work so well together”.
Mary Dwyer, NHS SOS

What they say about Banner:

“Truly inspirational”. Tony Benn
“We need Banner’s anti-cuts, anti-tax dodgers and pro-union productions to raise awareness and challenge the myths propagated by the corporate media.” Mark Serwotka, General Secretary, PCS

”I loved the show’s powerful mix of song, music, theatre and video footage….” Kevin Courtney, Deputy General Secretary, National Union of Teachers
