Dear friends,

In the 1880s the radicals in Leeds used to gather in Angel pub off Briggate to toast Tom Paine's memory on his birthday, the 29 January. For several years the Ford-Maguire Society has tried to copy this event without much success.
This year we have booked Viva Cuba for the 29th January from 1pm. The cost will be 20.
Paul Fitzgerald (Polyp) author of the graphic book on Tom Paine, will be there with signed copies of his book
At the end of the meal we will toast Tom Paine.
Email Garth Frankland if you are coming. We need to do this for the numbers for the buffet.
This promises to be a great evening.

See you there.
