People Power Passion

Or when disobedience got a bit less civil

One hundred years ago the Town Hall in Luton burned down, an event at a time of great dissatisfaction with the treatment of returning participants from World War 1. Part of the folk‐law is that the crowd broke into Farmers Music Shop and took out a piano 1 and sang Keep the Home Fires Burning.

We’ll be singing Keep the Home Fires Burning on Friday 19 July at the very same spot — The ‘new’ (1936) Town Hall.

We are playing a tiny part in a big event, which itself is just one of a series in Luton over 2019: People Power Passion 

This is why this website has lurched back to life !
