‘Ralph Thoresby in his own words’ by Prof. Peter Meredith

Description

Ralph Thoresby (1658-1725) the great Leeds diarist, antiquarian and collector lived all his life on Kirkgate. He was a man of strong feelings, not only about religion but about his books and his museum, his friends (especially at one time his Cousin Susy), his family, in particular his father, and his town. In this wonderful performance Peter Meredith, dressed for the part, recreates Ralph Thoresby, revealing some of his many sides in his own words.

This is a FREE event but booking is essential.
