Event description

Description

Mayday is very much a traditional holiday in this country. Perhaps today we have forgotten its ancient roots. The talk will investigate the long history of this day, especially in London with its apprentice holiday associations. A day which began in beauty soon became one of cruelty, revelry and rioting. Join Colin Oakes to learn more.
