Has Manchester Betrayed Its Radical Traditions? at Number 70 Oxford Street, Manchester, 15 July 2017 - Book now

Jonathan Schofield gives a potted history of Manchester’s incredible record of radicalism from the English Civil War through Peterloo, Chartism, free trade, female suffrage, unemployed protest in the Great Depression, the mass trespass, Clause 28 protests and on to 2017. Has Manchester Betrayed Its Radical Traditions? is a talk that asks whether there is fire still in the belly in the second decade of the 21st century. Has the atomization of the digital world into global groups rather than local and regional put out those flames? In a time of great upheaval, how come the response appears so dampened?

Part of the Humanities in Public Festival season on the theme of ‘Greater Manchester and Northern Identity’, this provocative illustrated talk includes a Q&A with Schofield – tour guide, public speaker and writer in the North West.
