Global Brickworks celebrates the Centenary

There are special prayers this evening at the Convent to commemorate the Battle of Grossbeeren, when (200 years ago today) the Prussians (under Von Bülow)  repulsed the French army.  Of course Napoleon was furious (you know what he was like).  Today at the Old Chapel Arts Centre Rev. Lanzarote is arranging a memorial ceilidh to celebrate the life of Sacco and Vanzetti who (despite dubious evidence) were executed on this day in 1927. And today Global Brickworks Arts are mounting the centennial project of the famous 1913 Hull Fair, the year when on August 23rd citywide celebrations greeted a new arrival.
