Event Details

Gloucester was not involved in the slave trade to the extent that Bristol was, however it does have surprising connections on both sides of the debate in the late 18th Century and early 19th that would lead to Abolition.This talk by Tony Condor looks at the information now available about the extent of the influence of the trade on the city and county and some of our well known characters who were involved. This talk is fully accessible for wheelchair users.

During the Heritage Open Days Talks, Gloucester Civic Trust tour guides will bring to life some of the characters and events that have shaped Gloucester’s fascinating 2,000 years of history. During these free events Covid-19 prevention measures will be observed to provide a safe environment for all. Please adhere to social distancing and wear a face mask.
