Up to 10,000 people came together for the annual Tolpuddle Martyrs’ festival in Dorset last weekend.
The event marks the anniversary of six local farm labourers being sent into exile in Australia for daring to organise a trade union in 1834.
They were then pardoned after years of campaigning and mass working class marches.
Today’s trade unionists and campaigners added to the political atmosphere of speeches, music and stalls at the festival.
The South West TUC organised event has got bigger in recent years and expanded to three days.
The festival finished with a huge march (right) through the streets on Sunday, to remember the martyrs.
