Derbyshire in Revolt: The Pentrich Rising 200 Years On

20th August 2017 - 9th September 2017 FREE

In June 1817 a group of around 300 men, from the villages of Pentrich and South Wingfield, set out to march on Nottingham as part of what they believed was a much bigger uprising against the government. To mark the 200th anniversary of the Pentrich Revolution and its suppression, Derby Museums will be exploring the causes, events and legacy, including some iconic objects linked to the revolt.
