To mark Slavery Remembrance Day, join us for a journey through the life of Bare-knuckle Boxer Bill Richmond, featuring readings from The Ballad of Bill Richmond, a new narrative poem by Adam Marchan, and a discussion around the largely unrecognised presence of Black people in Regency England, and the part they played in bringing about the abolition of slavery.

Part of the Gallery’s Friday Lates Programme. There will be a DJ and bar, and you’re welcome to enjoy the works on display in the Gallery until 9pm.

Free event, but booking required.
