On 17 May in 1649, on the orders of Cromwell, three Levellers' leaders were executed outside Burford Church. Each year we gather there for a day of celebration and commemoration of the ideas of the English Levellers - democracy, equality and religious freedom. Its a day of political debate, radical history, song and music. With high profile speakers, historians, entertainers and family fun, it is a great day out in the heart of the Cotswolds. The day starts with a commemoration by the church and then accompanied by music and song we march up the hill to the recreation ground for a programme of politics, debate, children's activities, refreshments and music.

The party will have a stall at this event
