7 September 2016: One of the first decisions made by delegates at the September meeting of Chelmsford TUC was to host a performance of ‘The Great Teachers’ Strike’. This will take place at Christ Church on November 28, commencing at 7pm. The show’s theme is how the Chicago Teachers’ Union and their community allies worked together for public sector education. The story, told by the excellent Banner Theatre Company, is woven together with vibrant music, songs and video footage. It is a remarkable performance that not only provides lessons but also inspiration. This will be the third visit to Chelmsford by the Banner Theatre Company.
