Monday Lecture: Attwood – The Triumphs and the Tragedy with Roger Ward

May 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free – £5

Born in 1783 in Halesowen, Thomas Attwood was partner in Attwood & Spooners Bank, appointed High Bailiff in 1812 and champion of the commercial community. A frustrated currency fanatic, he took up the cause of Parliamentary reform in 1830, founding and leading the Birmingham Political Union. Elected one of the town’s first MPs in 1832, he became an early Chartist before resigning and going into obscurity in 1839. He died in Malvern in 1856, an almost forgotten figure.
