An event will take place tomorrow, Sunday, in response to the cost of living crisis.

Starting at 7pm, Enough is Enough and Bury Trades Council will be at The Met to host an event and launch the Bury Enough is Enough local group.

Enough is Enough is a national campaign created by trade unions and community organisations to help battle the cost-of-living crisis.

Over 700,000 people have signed up to support the organisation since it was launched earlier this year.

Enough is Enough has five key demands:

1. A real pay rise

2. Slash energy bills

3. End food poverty

4. Decent homes for all

5. Tax the rich

Sunday’s event will see a mixture of comedy, music and speeches from including Smug Roberts (Phoenix Nights, Looking for Eric, Coronation Street), James Quinn (Early Doors, Doctor Who), Clint Boon (Inspiral Carpets), live music from Gerry O’Gorman, Malandra Jacks, and Shelli and contributions for leading trade unionists and community groups.

Bury Enough is Enough lead, Lucy Burke said: “This event is all about bringing people together.

“We want everyone in Bury who is struggling to put food on the table or pay their bills to know that they are not alone and that our trade unions and community groups are there to support them.”

Admission is free but tickets must be reserved in advance.
