The Temperance Movement, in which people took the pledge not to drink alcohol, effectively began in the North West and played an important part in the lives of many in the region. Despite this, it is a little remembered aspect of our history.

Explore groups such as the Rechabites, the Good Templars, the Sons of Temperance and the Band of Hope.  Find out why and when they were started, how they shaped people’s lives and their use of symbols and ritual.

Suitable for adults.
