Fatal Fires and Community Resilience in Post-War Britain

 
 Starts at 6:30 pm

This talk will explore the history behind the tragic Grenfell Tower fire in June 2017, paying particular attention to issues of building safety and the culture of risk.

It will discuss historic examples of fatal fires and building disasters – including Ronan Point (1968), New Cross (1981) and Bradford City Football Club (1985) – to illustrate the multiple political, social and cultural responses to tragedy.

This event takes place in the Chapter Hall which is on the second floor.
