Newport Rising Festival 2019

by | Mar 25, 2020

Newport Rising is a festival to celebrate and remember the Chartist Uprising of 1839 (also known as the Newport Rising) which was the last large-scale armed rebellion against authority in Great Britain and an important milestone on the road to modern democracy. This years event saw special performances and workshops take place across the city at different venues, with the main parade orchestrated by the Newport Rising team and Tin Shed Theatre. Through the day there were a number of different performances, workshops at The Westgate Hotel, headlined by Rusty Shackle.
