We shouldn’t take our green, open spaces for granted. Amir Dotan, curator of the hugely popular History of Stokey archive, shows how perilously close we came to losing Clissold Park in the 1880s and how community activism, Quaker ideals and an early mental health movement ensured its survival for future generations. With public spaces still in jeopardy, this is a timely reminder of our own role in helping preserve classless, life-enhancing spaces for everyone.Buy tickets
