  • To educate the wider public through exhibitions and lectures of the contribution of Dr Richard Price to the 18th Century intellectual life and how his ideas and beliefs are of relevance today:
  • To preserve all aspects of the heritage of Dr Richard Price for the good of society and the general public.

We aim to do this by:

  • Arranging a series of Guest Speakers to give public talks on all aspects of Richard
    Price's life;
  • Touring Schools, Womens Institutes and PROBUS Clubs to raise awareness of
    the contribution of Richard Price to 18th Century life and todays society;
  • Producing pamphlets and other literature to make the general public aware of
    the importance of Richard Price both in the past and in the present.
