Meet the Revolutionist Saturday 3pm
On Saturday afternoon, The Pentrich and South Wingfield Revolution Group will be giving a talk entitled ‘Claiming Our History’ about the Pentrich Revolution which occurred 200 years ago.   During turbulent times of political reform, the Industrial Revolution and the return home of troops who had been fighting the Napoleonic wars in 1817, discontent was growing.  A group of local men were to suffer grave consequences for their part in what effectively was a plot orchestrated by a government spy.  Learn about the events that led up to it, the people involved and the aftermath. You will also get to sample each of the special beers brewed by local breweries to commemorate the event.  Each of their names have significant relevance to it. The event will last approximately an hour with plenty of opportunity to ask questions.  There will be a £3 entrance fee and spaces are limited so e-mail us at avbeerorders@gmail.com to reserve your place.  Any remaining spaces can be booked at the Membership desk once the festival opens.
