Luddites and York: Saturday 19th January 2013

We’re happy to announce that, as trailed in our previous posts, York’s Alternative History will be hosting an event to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the execution of seventeen Luddites at York Castle. This will take place on Saturday 19th of January 2013.

There will be several speakers giving talks during the afternoon at a venue in the city centre; this will be followed by a commemorative event at the site of the executions, near to Skeldergate Bridge. There will also be an evening ‘wake’ for those executed, featuring drink, music, and radical song. Further details will go up on our website as we confirm them; in the meantime, if you’d like to learn more, then drop us an email: yorkalternativehistory@gmail.com
