Hayes and Southall Trades Union Festival, 1962

The Centre 42 group of artists, writers, actors and musicians took their name from Resolution 42 passed at the 1960 TUC Congress, which acknowledged the importance of the arts in the community and urged unions to participate in cultural activities. The group, with Arnold Wesker as director 1961-1970, helped to organise a series of local trade union festivals including this one in Hayes in 1962.

This page is from the souvenir programme and includes an extract, entitled 'Poetry in factory canteens' from the poem by Christopher Logue 'A Singing Prayer'.
