Walk of hope: to the castle!

Walk of hope: to the castle!


Saturday 19 November | 16.00

To the castle! By popular demand, People’s Histreh, Nottingham’s radical history group, will lead a lively walking tour of the city following the route of rioters who marched in the streets and then sacked and burned Nottingham Castle in 1831. The walk will explore the identities and motives of the rioters as well as their living and working conditions. Look out for the loaf on a stick! Dr Richard Gaunt is on an academic residency with the Castle Museum to bring together evidence of Nottingham’s long history of rebellion. The hopes and fears of the city’s population will be told as part of the visitor experience of Nottingham.
