Friends and Clarion members past and present came together to raise a glass (or two) in recognition of this landmark year.

We were honoured to be joined by so many of the people who have contributed to our success over the years. Happy Birthday also to Alan Rickman, who celebrated his 90th birthday in the same week! Here’s to many more years of singing, protesting and adding our voices  the pursuit of a better society. Cheers and Solidarity!
