Wednesday 2nd December 1998.

Lord David Renton, (left), former MP for Huntingdon, Anne Campbell, (centre), current MP for Cambridge, (both places represented by Oliver Cromwell in the 17th century), and Geoffrey Bush, (right), descendant of Oliver Cromwell, helped to launch the national leaflet for the 400th anniversary by the Cromwell statue at Westminster on Wednesday 2nd December 1998.

The Quatercentenary year was launched with two receptions, at Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire, and at Westminster. Local and national politicians, representatives of heritage organisations, the tourist trade and the press, joined with historians to mark the publication of the national leaflet.

The leaflet, with a print run of 200,000, is being widely distributed to Tourist Information Centres, museums and libraries. It lists all of the major events of the year. Copies are available from the Cromwell Museum, Grammar School Walk, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, PE18 6LF.
