Saturday 2 February 2013 is the 70th Anniversary of the Red Army Victory at Stalingrad, an epic moment that turned the tide against Hitler. Philosophy Football, in association with Hope not Hate, have organised a brilliantly eclectic event to mark the occasion.

After a set of blisteringly hot R&B socialist anthems from Thee Faction to dance or march to, prepare for the fusion of Balkan Ska and Ottoman Punk that is the Trans-Siberian March Band's speciality.

And as if all the dancing that will ensue isn't enough then Philosophy Football Nights add a curious mix of ideas and entertainment. Injecting the former into the occasion Seumas Milne, Guardian Columnist and author of The Revenge of History discusses the meaning of Stalingrad with acclaimed historian of the Eastern Front Geoffrey Roberts, author of Stalin's General : The Life of Georgy Zhukov and Susan Richards, editor of the OpenDemocracy Russia website and author of Lost and Found in Russia. From Hope not Hate Matthew Collins, author of Hate reports from today's anti-fascist frontline. .

At Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA. Doors open 6pm, show starts 7pm.

Tickets £9.99,from Philosophy Football or call 01273 472 721. Warning, we've been advised Philosophy Football nights ALWAYS sell out!
