Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival, 13-15 July, Tolpuddle
Tolpuddle Martyrs Festival 2012 The tiny Dorset village has been a place of pilgrimage for trade unionists and socialists ever since the Martyrs' came home in triumph. The festival is a popular mix of political discussion and speeches, great music to suit all tastes, entertainment for all the family and the traditional procession of banners, wreath laying and Methodist service. There is also a Radical History School in Tolpuddle - 'Paths of Protest', from 12-14 July.
