Lectures

Chartists in South Yorkshire – The Mexborough Connection.

The next Heritage Society talk will be on Wednesday 28th of February at 7.15pm. Ian parks will be discussing the mid nineteenth century Chartist movement and its links to South Yorkshire and Mexborough. Chartism was a movement in favour of the working people of Britain, which aimed, to get votes for everyone over 21 years old, and make it possible for working people to stand for parliament, thus gaining a voice. Much of its philosophy was spread through poetry and song, and through mass meetings which became very unpopular with the government of the time.

Ian has a comprehensive knowledge of the subject and the evening promises to be both entertaining and informative.
