Violence and shenanigans: A look at Abingdon's politics through the eyes of John Creemer Clarke

Tuesday, 23 January 2018 - 2:30pm

An important benefactor of the Town, Creemer Clarke ran an important clothing business and helped found Trinity Church and the Cottage Hospital, and is represented on the mural in the Town.   He was involved in many aspects of Abingdon’s political life by becoming its MP at a time when elections seem to have been much more lively with a great deal of audience participation at local meetings. It was always a relief when there was no actual violence. Silvia Joinson is a retired history teacher and a witty presenter on Abingdon’s turbulent past. This talk is in place of Trevor Rowley’s advertised presentation about Oxfordshire Castles.
