Culture Course 2 – Setting free the Slaves

Dinner and discussion at the home of Richard and Margaret Blake, and an opportunity to learn more about English culture, history and beliefs. A hot meal (with vegetarian options available) is followed by puddings, and then a talk from Richard. This event is free, but booking in advance is essential, as it is very popular, and numbers are limited.

The theme for this evening is   “Setting free the Slaves”   when Richard will be talking about the slave trade and Britain’s involvement. Richard will be telling us a bit more about William Wilberforce, and how influential he was in the abolition of the slave trade in the British empire, in the early 1800s.

Please book via eventbrite. (Booking opens on 8 Feb)  

If you book tickets for this event then find you are unable to attend, please “return” the tickets by logging into eventbrite, so that another student can come instead.  We only have a total of 30 tickets available for this event.
