Off With Their Heads

Autumn 2009

Radical History Walk

Date: Saturday 31st October
Venue: Starting from The Arnolfini
Time: 3-5pm
Price: Donation

Part of the Trapese Popular Education Collective's 'Start Producing the Future'.

The walk will take in the scenes of some radical activism, both ancient and modern, and compare this with the actions of the 'mob'.

Why did a man on a donkey in Corn Street and a Cambridge geek befriending the landlord of the Seven Stars had such an impact on the World. Why did a mob burn down Queen's Square in 1831? Who ate all the pies in 1832? What caused the Bristol Bridge Riot. Which brave man (or could it possibly be a woman?) organised Bristol's defences against the Royalists?

About 1.4 miles of easy walking, all welcome.

So, come for a little light exercise and learn about Thomas Clarkson, Jame Naylor, St. Wulfsan, Dorothy Hazard and various Bristol Riots.
