Present: Liberty – An Homage to George Orwell

Tuesday 21st January 2020 marks the 70th anniversary of the death of George Orwell – one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. A number of his works are 20th Century classics and feature on many a school curriculum.  Orwell was a staunch believer in upholding the truth in times of mounting strife and state obfuscation.

We wish to commemorate that core belief  – and we need that belief to prevail now more than ever.
