Mark’s illustrated talk will take us on a journey from 18th Century Sheffield through to the present, telling the stories of individuals and groups who influenced and campaigned for social change.

Among others we will learn about an 18th Century hell-raiser called Henry “Redhead” Yorke, a 19th Century circus manager referenced in a Beatles song, a lady of conscience who protected a runaway slave, and a Sheffield connection with Malcolm X.

This promises to be a fascinating, informative and thought provoking lecture, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
