This tour explores the historic connections between the University of Cambridge and the British Empire. This tour outlines local entanglements with the transatlantic slave trade, and takes a close look at controversies surrounding museum collections and the development of certain academic disciplines at Cambridge.
All profits from our Cambridge & Empire launch tours will be donated to support SolidariTee – A UK charity that provides legal aid to refugees! Information about SolidariTee will be available at the end of the tours and also during the evening reception.
All tickets sold for the special launch tours will also include *free admission* to a special reception and panel discussion about the local legacies of Empire on the evening of October 15.
