Bloomsbury’s Links to Slavery: St George’s Gardens in the Bloomsbury Festival

A presentation exploring how the lives of some of the people buried in St George’s Gardens were closely linked to slavery, which brought wealth and privilege to Bloomsbury.

On Saturday 22 October at 3pm, Friends of St George’s Gardens will be looking at the lives of some of the people buried in the Gardens who owned slaves or had other links to slavery. This is the fourth in a series of presentations about the inhabitants of the Gardens, It will star Debbie Radcliffe and Jules Date, who presented the story of Eliza Fenning so memorably last year. And FoSGG committee member Ian Brown is directing for us again. It’s a free event but please book an Eventbrite ticket if you intend to come because knowing numbers helps us plan – go to 2022 Festival Events – Bloomsbury Festival and search for ‘slavery’ or look in ‘talks, walks and tours’. We hope to see a lot of you there.
