Welcome to Read and Shout!

Welcome to Read and Shout 2011! Read and Shout is a special event, a live music event, a mini-festival, an evening of sublime indiepop held in the lovely Nettlefold Hall above West Norwood Library, but most of all Read and Shout is a protest against the widespread closure of libraries, here in London, and accross the Nation. Local Authorties accross the country are making plans to close hundreds of libraries (this figure could reach thousands – for a full picture of closures have a look at this: http://falseeconomy.org.uk/blog/library-closures-the-full-infuriating-picture#) We can’t sit back and let this happen. Libraries are one of the most valuable assets of a community. What’s more, people love their libraries, and this has been highlighted by protests against closures up and down the country. We are holding this event to help raise awareness of the cuts facing libraries. Not only will there be live music, but also speeches and campaigning…making a noise, rather than a ssshhh…letting those responsible know that people still care about their libraries, more than ever.
