Event: Protest, People, Politics – Methodists, Mow Cop & Social Change
Date: Saturday, 07 September 2019, 11:00 -  4:00
Location: National Trust Mow Cop Castle site

Mow Cop is one of 50 places chosen by the National Trust as part of The People's Landscape Project.

'People, Protest and Politics: Methodists, Mow Cop and Social Change', is an exciting event organised by a partnership of The National Trust, Englesea Brook and The Methodist Church. 

We want to celebrate the Primitive Methodist movement, which transformed the lives of working people in the 19th century, and its legacy and influence today.

The day will consist of a rolling programme of speakers, poetry from Emily Galvin, Staffordshire's poet laureate, and singing from the John Moore Quire (sic!).

Refreshments will be available at Mow Cop Methodist Church. There will also be stalls, community singing and local historians to chat to.
