About the event

To mark Slavery Remembrance Day, join us for a journey through Bare-knuckle Boxer Bill Richmond’s life, 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.
