A Radical Walk Around Wimbledon

  • 8 September 2019 14:00 - 15:30
  • 267 The Broadway, London, UK

Between 1881 and 1896 William Morris and the artist Edward Burne-Jones had workshops in Wimbledon, where they advocated Arts and Crafts ideals and the fair treatment of workers. Join Peter Walker on his hugely informative tour about the roots of Wimbledon’s socialism and uncover the people who forged our radical local history. The walk also tells the story of Wimbledon’s radical suffragettes. This is the same “Radical Walk” that Peter does each year for the Wimbledon Bookfest. This year’s two Bookfest walks sold out before the end of July, so if you missed out here is another chance. Meeting Point: William Morris House, 267 The Broadway, SW19 2SD. Ends: Leather Bottle pub, Kingston Road. The walk takes approximately 90 minutes. We hope to sell 20 tickets at £15 each and raise £300 for Sue Hubbert’s A Few of the Many campaign for the learning disabled. This campaign seeks to bring attention to those attending this year’s Labour’s conference the plight of the 1.5 million people in the UK with learning disabilities.
