2019 – What’s on Now?

2019 – What’s on Now?

New Earswick

One of the main things we’re doing in 2019 is helping to create a Visitor Centre on behalf of the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust in the Folk Hall in New Earswick that tells the intriguing story of the foundation of one of Britain’s earliest model villages – and one that became a prototype for 20th century housing and planning. As part of this we’re writing a brief history of the village to complement our New Earswick walks booklet, and we’re organising an event for the Festival of Ideas on Tuesday 11 June, hosting a discussion about the history and future of the Garden Cities Movement.
