Tony Benn and Bay City Roller for Glasto

For the traditional Left Field Sunday session

Tony Benn and Bay City Roller for Glasto

13 April 2007

Benn's Sunday sessions have become a popualar fixture in recent years at the festival, which returns to Worthy Farm, Pilton, on June 22-24 this year.
 
Eric Faulkner comes from a solid trade union background and his dad was a shop steward for the GMB union. He will be playing songs from the trade union movement with a few Rollers numbers thrown in before Benn takes to the stage for his traditional sunday session in front of a packed house of 5000 at the Left Field.
 
The Left Field stage is promoted by the Battersea and Wandsworth TUC who own the Workers Beer Company. It has grown from a beer tent to the biggest covered stage on the Glastonbury site with a capacity of 5000. The promoters are promising a stunning international line up this year is support of the global fight for economic and social justice.
 
Geoff Martin, Left Field's Director, said: "Eric Faulkner is a top bloke and dead proud of his union roots and he was blown away when we suggested he open for Tony Benn at Glastonbury.
 
It's been suggested that there's a touch of Life on Mars about this connection - Eric was a teenage star in the 70's when Tony Benn was a Labour Minister.
 
One thing's for sure - they'll have a packed house at this years Glastonbury under the banner "Another World is Possible
".
