Billy Bragg: The Three Dimensions of Freedom

Venue: The British Music Experience, Cunard Building, Canada Boulevard, L3 1DS
Time: 8pm (Doors at 7.30pm) 

Tickets: £12/£8 (Students/Over 60s/Unemployed) 



Billy Bragg launches his new book The Three Dimensions of Freedom, a short and vital polemic arguing that to protect ourselves from encroaching tyranny, we must look beyond this one dimensional notion of what it means to be free.

At a time when opinion trumps facts and truth is treated as nothing more than another perspective, free speech has become a battleground. While authoritarians and algorithms threaten democracy, we argue over who has the right to speak. By reconnecting liberty to equality and accountability, restore the individual agency engendered by the three dimensions of freedom.
