A Raised Fist & A Helping Hand



A sudden rush of confirmations today takes our total to the magic 200 mark. It is a phenomenal effort from all you good people out in the four corners committing your time and energy to the cause and much love and respect to all of you. There are still a good number of events in varying stages of coming together so we expect that total to rise still further over the next week or two. REMEMBER, it is not too late to get something started in YOUR town and it can be ANYTHING from an open mic you were running anyway, to a Billy Bragg gig (I mean, come on, dream big you lot! There’s magic in the air!). All you need is a willing venue and some determination. EMPOWER YOURSELVES!

Great news today from Seamus Kik, a film maker based in the south of Ireland looking to capture the essence of WSO. We directed him to Liverpool. Where else! Seamus will hopefully shoot some great footage and with any luck be able to contribute to WSO: The Movie. Remember all you budding cameramen, Wayne Sables is planning to make a documentary film about our weekend and is looking for as much material as he can gather from all our events, and we’re talking not only concert footage but crowd footage, onstage footage, backstage footage, interviews with organisers and fans alike. We want it all. The more we can tell this story from EVERYONE’S perspective, the more the film will hit home how remarkable this really is. A BIG thank you to Seamus for getting involved and we hope Liverpool affords him the kind of hospitality he deserves. I know it will.


You are slowly changing the world.
