Event description

Description

Who Owns England? Behind this simple question lies our country’s oldest and best-kept secret.

For centuries, England’s elite have covered up how they got their hands on millions of acres of our land, by constructing walls, burying surveys and more recently, sheltering behind offshore shell companies. But with the dawn of digital mapping and the Freedom of Information Act, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for them to hide.

Trespassing through tightly-guarded country estates, ecologically ravaged grouse moors and empty Mayfair mansions, writer and activist Guy Shrubsole has uncovered a wealth of never-before-seen information about the people who own our land, to create the most comprehensive map of ownership in England that has ever been made public.

Join author and campaigner Guy Shrubsole's Who Owns England? book launch to understand how we lost our green and pleasant land and how to take it back!

This event is co-organised by Stir to Action and Port East, a co-operative and community business based in Bridport, Dorset.

Advance/online ticket? £6.98, inc booking fee
On the door ticket? £8 (subject to availability)
