It’s 40 years since Wally Hope started the Peoples’ Free Festivals at Stonehenge and 30 years since the last one.
Wally Dean will tell the tales of The Wallies and the Peace Convoy. He will take us from Wally’s utopian vision, his incarceration, and his suspicious demise, to the heyday of the anarchic free festival movement and its oppression at the hands of Thatcher’s Tory Party and the continuing struggle to free Stonehenge today.
Wally Hope was the catalyst that spawned Crass and the anarcho-punk movement. His death still inspires conspiracy theories after all this time.
Was it suicide… or was he murdered by the state? You decide!
