Every day we are bombarded from all sides by news of elections, homelessness, war, cover-ups, global warming, rising house prices, referendums, famine, green energy, education, gay rights, prison over crowding...the list goes on. Each issue affects us all in different ways and the flood of information that sweeps over us can be so overwhelming that it becomes easier just to switch off and subsequently keep opinions to ourselves. But it doesn't have to be that way... Political Pageantry urges everyone to get creative, put their hand up and have a voice!

TREMers & Dréim Productions return to the Old Red Lion with a series of theatrical evenings that will feature original performances inspired by the issues of today. This is a fantastic opportunity to see brand new politically minded work using poetry, music, puppetry, drama, spoken word and dance created by a selection of talented performers and artists.
Profits made from these events will be donated to Centre Point and go towards providing a safe place to live for young homeless people, aged 16-25, in London and the North East of England - centrepoint.org.uk.
