John Rees – The Levellers’ Revolution

Tuesday, 31st January, 2017    
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Five Leaves Bookshop*
14a Long Row, Nottingham, NG1 2DH

lrJohn Rees’ tells the gripping story of the Levellers, the radical movement at the heart of the English Revolution in the mid-1600s.

In particular Rees places the Levellers at the centre of the debates of 1647 when the nation was gripped by the question of what to do with the efeated Charles I. Without the Levellers and Agitators’ fortitude and well organised opposition history may have avoidedthe regicide and missed its revolutionary moment. The legacy of the Levellers can be seen in the modern struggles for freedom and democracy across the world.

This event will be £3 admission and refreshments will be provided.
