Civic Pride in Victorian Leeds: the Heaton family and their legacy
Dr Simon Morgan delivers this talk to coincide with the 160th anniversary of the opening of Leeds Town Hall.
Using the journals of Dr John Deakin Heaton of Claremont, Leeds, this talk explores the contribution of the Heaton family to the educational, charitable and cultural life of the town, and traces their legacy in modern-day Leeds.
This event is part of Leeds Cultural Conversations, a series of lunchtime talks organised by the Centre for Culture & the Arts. For more information on the series please visit the website.
