Levellers' Day 2017
Sat, May 20, 2017, 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM BST
On 17 May in 1649, on the orders of Cromwell, three Levellers's leaders were executed outside Burford Church. Each year we gather there for a day of celebration and commemoration of the ideas of the English Levellers' - democracy, equality and religious freedom.
Its a day of political debate, radical history, song and music. With high profile speakers, historians, entertainers and family fun, it is a great day out in the heart of the Cotswolds.
The day starts with a commemoration by the church and then accompanied by music and song we march up the hill to the recreation ground for a programme of politics, debate, childrens activities, refreshments and music.
