90. THE KING AND THE CATHOLICS: THE FIGHT FOR RIGHTS 1829

Generously sponsored by

The Roman Catholic Relief Act of 1829 was hailed as a ‘bloodless revolution’ and was the culmination of a process that started with the violent anti-Catholic Gordon riots in 1780. In conversation with James Stourton, Antonia Fraser will bring colour and humour to the vivid cast of characters who were integral to the gripping story of how Catholics in Britain won back their rights after two hundred years of official discrimination.
