Consort of 1 and Clare Goodall present: Firestarter John Ball and the Great Revolt
Live-looped music from the 14th century provides the backdrop to the tale of the
Great Revolt and radical preacher John Ball. Born near Colchester (maybe?),
Ball preached in English (shocking!) and claimed that everyone was created
equal (scandalous!!). He was excommunicated and would have languished in jail
had he not been released by the Rebels as they took London, burnt the Savoy,
and went on to parley with the King. The future hung in the balance...
