Join us on a journey to uncover London’s Radical History with David Rosenberg as he introduces a new edition of his book Rebel Footprints.
Rebel Footprints brings to life the history of social movements in the capital. Transporting readers from well-known landmarks to history-making hidden corners, Rosenberg tells the story of protest and struggle in London from the early nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century.
From the suffragettes to the socialists, from the Chartists to the trade unionists, he invites us to step into the footprints of a diverse cast of dedicated fighters for social justice.
Whether you are visiting it for the first time, or born and raised in it, Rosenberg invites you to see London as you never have before: the nation’s capital as its radical centre.
Tickets £4 (redeemable against the price of ‘Rebel Footprints‘ by David Rosenberg).
Includes a glass of wine/soft drink.
