An event will be held later this year to mark the 50th anniversary of the Upper Clyde Shipbuilding (UCS) work-in, which included employees at the John Brown's yard in Clydebank.

Making A History - A Day-school celebrating the USC Work-In, 1971-72 will be held at Golden Friendships Community Hall in Dalmuir on March 12 this year.

The work-in at UCS saw workers stage a sit-in following the Conservative government's decision to remove funding and attempt to close the yard.

The decision meant at least 6,000 of the 8,500 shipyard workers employed by the yards would have to be made redundant.

The work-in saw workers manage and operate the UCS shipyards until the government changed its policy.

Over four sessions the event will delve into the UCS work-in 50 years on: what happened, why it matters from keynote speakers, then four activists will speak about their personal experiences.

It will include a discussion with Neil Gore (playwright) and Louise Townsend (director and producer) of "UCS: Yes, Yes, Yes" and will finish with a concert from singer songwriter Findlay Napier.

The event which runs from 10am-3pm and is free, but registration is required by February 18.

Tickets can be found at Ticketsource.
