Headstrong Club: The Porn Panic and the New Left’s War on Free Expression

Friday 21 Apr @ 8:00pm - 10:00pm

£3

A Headstrong Club talk by Jerry Barnett, founder of the Sex & Censorship campaign and author of Porn Panic!


The original Headstrong Club was formed in the 18th century as a debating society. It met in the White Hart and was notable for counting democracy campaigner Thomas Paine as a member. In fact, Lewes historian Colin Brent notes that Paine often won the prize for “most obstinate haranguer”.

Today’s Headstrong Club was formed in January 1987 by David Powell and John May. It’s now based at the Elephant and Castle pub and generally meets once a month, with a summer break. There’s a charge of £3 for entry to meetings.
