19:00 Category: Secular Hall (non-LSS event)[19:00] Leicester and the Spanish Civil War talk (non-LSS)
Leicester and the Spanish Civil War: Public Talk A "Journey to Justice Leicester" event. The talk discusses Leicester's extraordinary and unexpected connections to the Spanish Civil War and promises to shed new light on the six locals (at least one, Roy Watts, was a Leicester Secular Society member) who volunteered to fight. It will be led by Henry Brown and Adrian Pole, two history graduates from Leicester who have spent the past year researching the city's little-understood links to Civil War Spain. The talk will be followed by a Q&A. Free admission but please register via Journey To Justice ( https://jtojleicester.org.uk/events-2/2019/10/19/leicester-and-spanish-civil-war ) where you will find full details. Don't miss the Journey To Justice exhibition and other events at Attenborough Arts this month - details at https://jtojleicester.org.uk/ or follow @jtoj_leicester on Twitter https://twitter.com/jtoj_leicester Looking Ahead: A number of children were evacuated from Spain to protect them from the bombing. Some found shelter and protection at a Leicester convent, and some of these remained in Britain and had their own families here. Their story will be told at Secular Hall on 19 January 2020 (details tbc).
