The Bishopsgate Institute is home to the library and archives of numerous radicals and troublemakers, including infidel Charles Bradlaugh, blasphemer George Jacob Holyoake and a wealth of other collections documenting people and organisations who dared to challenge the status quo. Join Library and Archives Manager Stefan Dickers to explore the stories that lie behind many of the collections on the shelves at Bishopsgate institute and explore the themes of London, labour, co-operation, freethought and protest. 

Stefan qualified as an archivist in 2001 and started at Bishopsgate in 2005. Previous to this, Stefan worked in the archives of the London School of Economics and Senate House Library
