Cardboard Citizens Theatre Company and Crisis

Tuesday 8 December 2020 (18:00-19:00)

The 1824 Vagrancy Act remains in force - it resulted in 2,365 prosecutions in 2016-17, with the authorities having additional anti-social behaviour legal powers.

Despite all the improvements in homelessness policies, there persists, especially in the political and media spheres, rhetorical narratives that our Victorian predecessors would recognise, and which stigmatise those most in need.  There will be an online performance and panel discussion about the history of the Vagrancy Act and how it might soon be repealed.

Join Professor Nick Crowson, Cardboard Citizens Theatre Company and Crisis for a free online event exploring the Vagrancy Act.

The event is free to attend, but please register: register for this event
