LEGENDARY venue The Trades Club in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, is to stage an annual week of action in support of the people of Palestine.

The decision was taken at a half-yearly general meeting of the club, though a date is yet to be set for the first week, when the flag of Palestine will be flown at the club.

The Trades Club was built in 1924 as a centre of organisation, education and recreation for thousands of textile and tailoring trades unionists in the Calder Valley.

Although the industries have disappeared the club continues as a musical venue and centre of political activity, including fund-raising benefits which include Palestine solidarity and the Morning Star.

The club is for the second time a finalist in the Small Venue of the Year category in an annual competition staged by the NME.
