    Would this be suitable for a bright Y9 student doing G.C.S.E. History? I can prepare him with background knowledge in advance.. I cannot make links above work (get error 404 “page not found” every time) but definitely want to register for 1 \(or possibly 2) to pay on the day. Please acknowledge.

      Thank you for your enquiry about the suitability of this Day School for your GCSE student. The Pentrich to Peterloo Day School is a joint venture between the Pentrich and South Wingfield Revolution Group and the University of Nottingham (principally Dr. Richard Gaunt who is an Associate Professor within the Department of History and specialises in late eighteenth and early nineteenth century British history, with a particular specialism in the political and electoral history of the age). There will be presentations by local history group people as well as by university academics so there will be something of a mix. You can get more information directly from Richard Gaunt at richard.gaunt@nottingham.ac.uk

      The pre-booking, pre-payment links don’t work from the University of Nottingham’s own web page either!

      If you don’t get a quick response from Richard Gaunt try Roger Tanner rogerntanner@yahoo.co.uk at the South Wingfield Group
