We’d love you to join other journalists on the demonstration, hope to see you there.

So, if you’re planning on hitting the streets this Saturday, here’s some handy tips on what to do and what to bring so you’re fully prepared for the day.
  • March form-up order and route: The front of the march will assemble outside the BBC, on Portland Place (near the junction with Langham Place), and the march will form up behind, going north towards Park Crescent. It will be easier to join the march from the rear. If you’re joining the march as part of your union or a supporting organisations, please look for your allocated section. Stewards will be available to help you find your section.
  • Disabled access: The short march will form up at Whitehall Place, from 11am. Accessible toilets at the form up and rally have been arranged – marchers should ask a steward for directions. There’s a quiet venue rest stop during the route at St James church at Piccadilly. 
    The rally will have British Sign Language interpreter on the stage and speech to text transcript. It will be live streamed on TUC’s Facebook page with live captions.
  • First aid: If you require medical attention on the day, there will be ambulances stationed at the front and rear of the march and a first aid tent at the rally.
  • Toilets: We’ve created an interactive map so you can find the nearest toilets on the march route.
  • Updates: On the day we will use Twitter @The_TUC and communications via stewards to provide updates.
  • Need help on the day: Please find the nearest steward who will be wearing a pink or orange TUC hi-vis vest and the will help you with your questions.
