    THE TRUE STORIES OF NOTTINGHAMS GRISLY PAST

    Local author Adam Nightingale, is to present his one-man show, ‘GEORGIAN BLOODBATH’ at the home of Nottingham’s horrible history, the Galleries of Justice Museum, on Thursday 17th November at 7.30pm. 

    His show originates from the evil margins of Nottingham in  the 18th century and is an interactive, irreverent mixture of bloody local history, expert storytelling, gory special effects and audience interaction, performed within the gothic surroundings of The Galleries of Justice, the nation’s finest prison museum and one of the world’s most haunted buildings.

    The former prison and gaol has been the site of many public executions and housed some of Nottingham’s most infamous criminals.
