Mills, Mayhem and Murder: Luddites in West Yorkshire

27th April@10:30 am - 12:00 pm BST


NB   This is to replace the one i sent yesterday.  The date has been changed from 20th April to 27th April.

The  Luddites in Bradford were revolutionaries.  They were being put out of work in the early 19th century by new technology and no-one would listen to their complaints.  Consequently they took to violence – particularly smashing up new fangled machinery.  The speaker David Pinder is a known specialist in Luddite history.   This talk forms part of regular monthly meeting talks.  Come along and see if you enjoy being part of the Bradford u3a which is an organisation aimed at bringing stimulation and interest to those no longer in work.  For more details of joining the Bradford u3a go to bradfordu3a website for information on the 35 other interest groups.
