Workers Online 100th Issue Bash
We're marking our centenary of issues in the finest tradition of the workers press - a few beers in a pub by the wharves!
The date is July 2 and the venue is Moreton's on Sussex. Kick-off at 6pm. Lots of surprise guests - including one secret big one.
It should be a fun night - and we'll be launching our commemorative book - "The Ship of Tools" to mark the three figures.
We'll also be announcing details of an exciting new web initiative - Wobbly Radio.
We have 50 tickets to the party reserved for Workers Online readers. If you want to come along just click the button below.
