Levellers Day in Burford 19 May 2018

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.


Please check the website nearer the time to find out the theme of the day and the guest speakers

Time: 10.30am - 4pm
