Campaign which will be held at the Royal Festival Hall
shortly after the ending of Nuclear Disarmament Week, on
Monday, 21 st September, at 11 p.m.
The Matinee is being organised by the Women's Group of
the Campaign, with the help of J. B. Priestley. The
programme will include stars of stage, screen and radio
Dame Peggy Ashcroft, Jill Balcon, Constance Cummings,
Cecil Day-Lewis, Gerard Hoffnung, Miles Malleson, Denis
Matthews, Michael Redgrave, Dame Sybil Thorndike, Stanley
Unwin and others.
We hope that Groups will start right now organising
coach parties and that individual supporters will bring a
group of friends. Some transport home will be provided by
Tickets will be available from the Royal Festival Hall
and from the Campaign Office at 143 Fleet Street, E.C.4,
towards the end of the month, at £1, 15s., 10s., 7s.
6d., 5s. and boxes (five people) at £6 5s. and
Leaflets with tear-off order forms for tickets will be
available also by the end of the month, and posters.
Trafalgar Square Rally
The final demonstration in London of Nuclear
Disarmament Week will take place on the day before the
Matinee, on Sunday, 20th September, in Trafalgar Square,
at 4 p.m. It will be followed by a short march around the
West End and down the Strand and Fleet Street to St.
Paul's Cathedral. Bertrand Russell has agreed to be one
of the speakers, weather permitting. This will be the
first time he has spoken in the Square.
As this will be mainly a London Demonstration (other
Regions are holding their final rallies on Saturday, 19th
September) we hope that all supporters in the Greater
London area will make sure that the Square is packed.
Leaflets and posters advertising the Rally will be ready
