Revolting Marlborough – Episodes from the Town’s Turbulent Past

June 24 @ 19:00 - 21:00

Nick Baxter tells us that the image of the town having a quiet history hides its radical past. Just how revolting was Marlborough?  This talk explores the themes of Medieval Mayhem, Tudor Ruffians, 17th Century Crisis, and the Reform Bill Riots of 1831 when the town’s MPs were burnt in effigy by an angry crowd.

* This talk may be postponed to preserve social distancing*

Admission:  Members £1 Guests £2
