PostHeaderIcon Live @ The Waterfront: In Conversation With Russell Brand -- 23 October

Thursday 23 October -- Live @ The Waterfront: In Conversation With Russell Brand -- Screening 7pm at the Waterfront Cinema, Customhouse Way, Greenock.

Controversial public figure Russell Brand talks to The Guardian’s Owen Jones about why he thinks revolution isn’t just possible, but inevitable. In his new book, the writer and comedian argues that the system isn’t working, that governments are corrupt and the opposing parties are all pointlessly similar. Is there another way or is this just ‘the way things are’? Brand sets out his ideas for a brighter, fairer society.
