Photographic exhibition opening:
Photographer Dave Sinclair began photographing his hometown of Liverpool, the people, derelict factories, docks and protests in the 1980s. He started working for the Militant newspaper in 1984.
In 1988 Dave visited Belfast to document that year's May day rally and other events including a dock strike and a threatened hospital closure. The show will consist on 60 original prints, the spine of the exhibition is the archive of May Day 30 years ago. A unique quality record of the only non-sectarian public event of the time, which resisted the attempts of others to claim it.
The guest speaker for the evening will be Brian Campfield (Secretary Belfast Trades Council 1988)
