Next term we plan to launch another round of our competition to write new songs for Fidel the musical (deadline 3rd April 2017). The competition will be free to enter. Like our Facebook page to be kept informed.
Our first ever performance of Fidel the musical went really well. Thanks to those who turned up and gave their feedback and to the wonderful cast and crew who put it together. We’ve summarised the feedback and you can access it here http://www.edshare.soton.ac.uk/16736/. We’d love to hear your views. Interesting suggestions included changing the title to Viva Cuba Libre and change the focus from just Fidel, to the Cuban revolution more generally. What do you think?
You can have see more songs from Fidel the musical at Leftfest on this Saturday 23rd July (between 2.45 and 3.45) at Southampton hub – seehttps://www.facebook.com/events/459815010890091/ Free entry and lots to see.

We managed to raise £2500 to workshop the musical at Mayflower Theatre, Southampton in 2016 via crowd-funding but we didn’t manage to sell our revolutionary glass. Check out our ebay listing above to bid for it and all proceeds will go towards the workshop. https://southampton.hubbub.net/p/fidel-the-musical
