Our Forthcoming Events
History Now! Temperance in the Town Hall: Drink, and Popular Petitioning in Victorian Durham
Today, rival campaigns bombard MPs with e-petitions and e-mails, representing constituents’ views to Parliament. 150 years ago, residents of Durham met in the Town Hall – or local pubs – to have their say on national controversies, signing paper petitions as testimonials to the community’s voice. This talk reveals the battles between moral advocates of temperance and those defending traditional rights to a pint.
