Goodbye Barcelona fundraiser

On 4 March 2011, Richard joined Paul Preston, Victoria Hislop and others at a fundraising event for Karl Lewkowicz and Judith Johnson’s Goodbye Barcelona, a musical set in the Spanish Civil War.

Goodbye Barcelona – A passionate new musical

In 1936, as fascism sweeps across Europe, one country reaches out in its hour of need… and tens of thousands of ordinary people make an extraordinary decision to help. More than 42,000 travel to Spain from all over the world, risking their lives for the freedom of others.

GOODBYE BARCELONA marks the 75th anniversary of the start of the Spanish Civil War, and is inspired by first hand accounts of International Brigaders.

‘A triumphant work of tender love, not to be missed’ Morning Star

IBMT Antifascistas exhibition

Co-author (with Jim Jump & Angela Jackson) of ‘Antifascistas’, an exhibition and accompanying book on British and Irish volunteers and the Spanish Civil War for the International Brigade Memorial Trust, 2010

Both the exhibition and the book have been well received. The following comments are taken from review of the book on the Amazon site:

‘Not much to say when something is so perfectly realised. Does what it says on the cover and then some.’

‘Clearly a labor of love, this book is packed with information, photographs, posters and artefacts, and details of the battles they fought. It’s a must.’
