200 years ago Helen Macfarlane was born in Barrhead, destined to become a Chartist revolutionary, radical philosopher and campaigner for equality. We’re coming together to celebrate her life:

  • Gerda Stevenson will read from her collection Quines, which includes Seeing Red, a poem about Helen
  • Soothside Radicles will perform their play Rare Birds, about Helen’s life
  • Q and A with Author David Black whose books have reinstated Helen in her place in history
  • Music from Kittlin’, 21st Century folk inspired by women, landscape and stories and Pauline Bradley, author of a new song about Helen.
