Join local historian Paul Dickson to celebrate the diverse history of Norwich and Norfolk. 

From street traders in the 18th and 19th century; to Pablo Fanque, the UK’s first Black circus impresario; to the American servicemen who brought soul music to the city, Norwich is rich in Black history.

The tour also looks at slavery – those involved in the slave trade, and the abolitionists from Norfolk including Amelia Opie and Harriet Martineau.

The tour will finish at the Maid’s Head Hotel, where all are welcome to get a drink at the bar, mingle and discuss.

This event is free and open to all (Fellows and non-Fellows), but please do book if you are planning on coming, and if you need to cancel, please let us know so we have accurate numbers and can offer your space to another Fellow.
