About this event

At the heart of the CIRCLE research centre is a concern for care, labour and equalities, which makes Sheffield a fitting home due to its long-standing association with social reform. King George III once described Sheffield as ‘a damned bad place’ such was its reputation for radical agitation and unrest. After a day spent at the CARE conference, why not join Sustainable Care’s Dr Cate Goodlad as she takes you on a brief walking tour of the city centre, highlighting some of the interesting stories and events from the city’s contribution to various campaigns for social change. We will take in sites that were prominent meeting places for those involved in both the men’s and women’s suffrage campaigns, including the location of England’s first ever female franchise society, run by women, for women. Stretch your legs and hear about the prominent social reformers and a 19th century gay right’s campaigner.

The tour will last about an hour and you will need to wear suitable footwear as some areas are cobbled and may be uneven underfoot. We will start from outside the Cathedral opposite the conference venue at 17:15 and will conclude at the Town Hall (the location for the conference dinner). Places are limited and booking is essential.

Please note that you must be attending the CARE: challenges and solutions for a sustainable future conference in order to take part in this event.
