This event will look at the momentous events of 1381 – when over 60,000 land-workers rebelled against a new poll tax. Hear about Wat Tyler and the peasant army in Clerkenwell in a Q&A with historian James Crossley, author of the essential history of the Revolt, ‘Spectres of John Ball’.

This momentous piece of history will be brought to life with readings by actor and MML Vice-president, Maxine Peake.
