Levellers! Living History and Drama Event
Saturday 28 September 2019, 10am—4pm, All Saint’s Church, Market Hill, Huntingdon
(Performances at 11.30am and 2.30pm)
Tickets: £5 per person
In 1649 soldiers from Parliament’s army staged a mutiny. They were part of a movement known as the ‘Levellers’, which were promoting radical ideas for the 17th century, including regular parliaments, the male population being given the vote, religious toleration and equality before the law. In May 1649 these men were surprised and caught by troops under Cromwell at Burford in Oxfordshire. This dramatised show, produced in association with members of the Sealed Knot, will tell the story of what happened next.
Proceeds from ticket sales for this event will go towards the Cromwell Museum’s refurbishment.
There will also be a Living History encampment in the churchyard of All Saints Church, open 10am – 4pm, which will be free to visit.
Tickets can be booked for the performances at the Cromwell Museum, or online at: https://www.cromwellmuseum.org/events/levellers
