Welcome to the Luddite Bicentenary

1811-1813 marks the 200th anniversary of the Luddite uprising in the Midlands and North of England.

This website plans to commemorate and celebrate the events of the bicentenary over at least the next two years. We plan to report in detail on the events of 200 years ago, on the actual dates that they happened here on this blog. We also aim to inform you of any forthcoming events that are planned to recognise the bicentenary - you can read about them here.

In the meantime, if you want to get in touch you can email us, follow us on twitter, or visit our facebook page.
