SUBVERSIVE STOKE NEWINGTON

THE HACKNEY REBEL TOUR!

BOOKING BUTTON

RADICALS, REFORMERS, REBELS AND REVOLUTIONARIES

Hackney Tours Corbyn Abney speech SMALL
Modern day radicals still frequent Abney Park, like Jeremy Corbyn at the grave of a Chartist.

Start: Abney Park cemetery main gates (5 mins from Stoke Newington rail) N16

End: Newington Green (buses to KX, Lewisham, Tottenham or 10 mins to Dalston/Canonbury Overground)

Duration: 1.5-2hrs

N16 has an unrivaled history of dissent: from Mary Wollstonecraft to William Wilberforce and Baader-Meinhof to William Booth, people wanting radical change have long been drawn to this area.

Hear why Stoke Newington is referred to by one book as ‘Village that Changed the World’ as we follow in the footsteps of Hackney’s writers, radicals, revolutionaries, & reformers. From the American Revolution to today’s Occupy, via some Music Hall mayhem and Hackney’s own urban guerillas, you’ll see the subversive side of Stokey.

We can finish at Dissenting Academy pub for drinks.
