Tom Paine in Lewes makes the Washington Post today (and the Dallas Morning News) in an article by freelancer Matthew Hampton entitled ' Revolutionary Road: Thomas Paine's Path to American Activism Began in a Free-Spirited British Town', for which I was interviewed.

Article links Tom Paine and the spirit of Lewes with the Lewes Arms campaign, detailed in my blog:

The Lewes Tom Paine Festival runs from July4-12th: music, theatre, debates, lectures, dances, movies. Check out all the details.


The Lewes pound note has had a redesign, courtesy of two local schools, and there will be three new denominations, a fiver, a tenner, and a twenty-one pound note (which has yet to be given a demotic nickname). To be launched July 3rd.
