History fans! No booking required for this lecture tomorrow by Dr Lucinda Matthews-Jones, of Liverpool John Moores University, at Teesside University tomorrow.
'When the Rev. Samuel Barnett proposed that Oxbridge men move to reside in poor districts of Britain’s great cities, he believed that their working-class counterparts suffered not only from economic disadvantages but also from a ‘poverty of life’.
His solution was a place where working men could experience beauty, truth and culture, but also as a place where the ‘two nations’ could be reconnected. Toynbee Hall was one of those places, designed to be an alternative domestic space for both the Oxbridge graduate settler and for their working-class neighbour.'
