BOOKING RECOMMENDED http://store.nottingham.ac.uk/product-catalogue/schools-and-departments/humanities/the-history-festival-2017

Follow in the rioters’ footsteps, taking a close look at the direct action of these so-called ‘misguided rascals’. This tour will look into their identities, motives as well as living and working conditions in early nineteenth century Nottingham. The route is wheelchair accessible (although there are some hills and a few cobbles along the way). About People’s Histreh People’s Histreh are a group of people interested in what has been called “history from below” or “grassroots history”. As Nottingham and Nottinghamshire have such a long and turbulent history of socio-economic transformation and disturbance and conflict, there is a lot to be unearthed. In fact, the most amazing, inspiring, shocking and outrageous stories leap out wherever the surface is scratched.
