Independence festival ticket 1998 front


The Independence Festivals were annual national events from 1997 to 2001 celebrating disabled people’s lives and culture. The first 3 were held in Manchester, followed by Birmingham in 2000 and Leeds in 2001. The festivals in Manchester were held in Albert Square and the Town Hall. They were made up of an outside daytime event with a stage for performance, market stalls for organisations and workshops, followed by an indoors evening performance
