    "I went to see United We Stand at the Lantern Theatre in Liverpool this evening, it was very enjoyable and compelling from start to finish.

    The builders’ strike was something I really didn’t know a lot about previously, I wasn’t actually born for another 21 years! However I’ve always had an interest in trade unions and demonstrations for better conditions due to members of my family being arrested as part of the miners’ strike. (This is something that gets discussed at great length at family gatherings after a few sherbets!)

    It was so eye-opening to see how the legal system and the press manipulated facts. I will definitely be following the Shrewsbury 24 campaign. How ridiculous and unjust that they were kept away from their families, all for peaceful demonstrations. The scene in which the police officer interviewed Des Warren made me feel disgusted about what had happened. Good on you for telling their story and doing it justice, also adding some hilarious moments too – absolutely loved the way politicians and the police were ridiculed.

    I’d spotted The Guardian (3 stars, bastards!) had said, ‘Whatever your politics, this a production worth seeing,’ to be honest I don’t really ‘do’ politics. I tend to feel pretty apathetic when it comes to the matter, as I know a lot of people my age do. Without sounding too much like my Dad, ‘Politicians are all the bloody same these days.’ I find 1970s and 80s politics far more interesting, and it made a nice change to actually experience something that fired a political interest in me, so thank you for that.

    I completely and utterly take my hat off to William Fox and Neil Gore – how they learnt all the words I’ll never know! I wish them and the rest of the team all the best for the rest of the tour. "

    United we stand was superb, thought provoking and emotional! Apart from that it was rubbish!! If I could find the time I would love to see it again. Thank you Townsend productions for a brilliant Friday night

    "A message to the comrades who performed We Will Be Free and for all
    those who made it possible

    Just to say we really enjoyed the performance the other night, it was
    brilliantly done and clearly the message still resonates today. I
    remember seeing 7:84 doing the Six Men of Dorset in 1984 during the
    miners strike and have seen Bill Forsythes Comrades, but this stands
    alongside those. Keep doing what you're doing because we really need
    our stuff performed.

    Could you do one based on the Levellers/Diggers, Light Shining In
    Bucks, True Levellers Standard Advanced etc or
    Paris Commune, not sure how they could be done with two performers but
    I'm sure you would find a way.

    Slainte mhath, good luck and 'we are many they are few'

    Phil Jackson and Heather Sinclair"

    "We Will be Free is a brilliantly executed and poignant telling of the stories of the founders of the modern trade union movement. Through song, poetry and fun we are reminded that those of us in the workers' movement have to keep on fighting for ideas that we've inherited and which are as relevant today as they were nearly two centuries ago.'

    "Saw you at Stroud last night. Brilliant.
    My world was changed by reading Hobsbawm and Rude on Captain Swing a long time ago.
    What you have managed to with so much tragedy was marvellous.
    All the best for the tour. Look forward to the next one.
    My father was on the building sites right through the 70s, so it will mean a great deal."

    Hello there - thanks for a great night in Stroud - I have posted a warm review on www.radicalstroud.blogspot.co.uk. Hope to see you again somewhere

    "What a great performance in Dorchester last night. The couple next to us were seeing the show for the second time, and at the end we could see why!
    They came from Puddletown and both had a grandparents who had worked in agriculture - one in Tolpuddle itself. Strangely neither of the couple had been informed about the events of Tolpuddle by their schools or their family.
    We all owe you thanks for keeping the story alive, and in an entertaining and emotional manner. It was a memorable performance in so many ways, and we were particularly stuck by final words spoken by Betsy - Might there be a way of having that final speech being sent to us please? In addition to reading the words we would be very interested if the performance becomes available on DVD.
    Thanks again for a very special evening."

    "What a super – superb – performance – thank you!!
    May we please have the words of Betsy’s closing ‘prayer’ – we’d like to savour again those thoughtful and thought-provoking words.
    Thanks once more."
