The Big Issue magazine was launched in 1991 in response to the growing number of rough sleepers on the streets of London. It offered people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income through selling a magazine to the public. Over twenty-five years on, their vendors come from a variety of backgrounds and face the myriad of problems associated with poverty and inequality.

In this fascinating talk, John Bird will discuss his links to Richmond, why The Big Issue began here, and how this award- winning magazine continues to offer employment opportunities to people in poverty. The Big Issue Group has grown to a multi-million pound social investment business supporting enterprise to drive social change.

Looking for something light hearted and different to do one evening after work in Richmond ? We have just the thing.

The Museum of Richmond celebrates its 30th Anniversary in October 2018. Not wanting to miss out on Halloween fun we are merging our Birthday Party and a creepy walking tour of what remains of Richmond Palace.

After meeting in the foyer of the Old Town Hall we will go on a walking tour outside of what remains of the Palace near Richmond Green. We will then return to the Museum for some wine and, in true kids birthday party style, to ice and decorate some cakes and biscuits with a creepy twist!

Feel free to dress up in your best Halloween costumes – we will be!

Looking forward to seeing you there.
