    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.

    November is a time to remember people who have fought or toiled in the most difficult conditions to preserve the human rights and freedom that we cherish so dearly. Whether it’s World War II, the Faulklands conflict, Bosnia and the breakup of former Yugoslavia and right up to present day Afghanistan, we pay our respects to people who have sacrificed so much to help deliver a safer
