Historical Walking Tour of the Human Rights in Bloomsbury
Sat 10 December 2016, 12:00 – 13:30 GMT
Join us on Human Rights Day 2016, 10 December, on a journey through the streets of Bloomsbury, to discover the history of the human rights advocates that have resided in this area over the centuries.
Who were they? What did they do? What opposition did they face? And most importantly, how have their brave actions affected how we live our lives today?
Meet the people who tell their story best, from Suffrages to Anti-War Philosophers, to pioneers for the protection of children and basic rights of prisoners, this walk is an opportunity to hear their tales and to unearth the humanitarian history that is firmly imprinted on the grounds of Bloomsbury.
Let the origins of human rights come to life, as we explore what the future of human rights may hold for us all, by learning from the past struggles for human rights in Britain.
Meet our 2 tour guides in Senate House, South Block reception of the School of Advanced Study on Saturday, December 10th, at 12pm.
Family friendly event.
