British Communism in Campaigns and Events, 1947-1991

This collection contains documents relating to discrete campaigns and events organised by the Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB) during the period 1947-1991. The documents include minutes, correspondence, press releases, posters, and programmes. They provide an insight into the ways in which British communists sought to influence the opinions of members and the general public in the 20th century.

Campaigns and events covered include Red November, the Moscow History Conference, Marx with Sparx Festival, People’s Festival, Left Unlimited, New Towns Conference, and Empire Communist Parties Conference. The materials touch upon several important subjects, from urban planning and colonialism to popular culture and the role of the Soviet Union in British domestic politics

The collection is accompanied by three contextual essays written by Professor Kevin Morgan, a senior academic at the University of Manchester.
