Online Talk: Remember, Remember the Fifth of November

Remember, remember the fifth of November – gunpowder, treason and plot… but what is the real story behind Bonfire Night, Guy Fawkes and fireworks?

Join the Bar Convent via Zoom for a free online lecture as Sr Patricia Harriss CJ explores what caused a group of young English gentlemen to plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605. Who were these men? What did they hope to gain? How was the plot discovered and what happened to the plotters? And what was the connection with the first sisters at the Bar Convent?

This online talk will be taking place between 2pm and 3pm on Thursday 5th November. It is free to attend and all are welcome.
