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. It is home to the most active poltergeist in the UK, making it a great place to visit for ghost tours in Nottingham.
In ‘Georgian Bloodbath’ Adam puts his own unique and graphic perspective on Nottingham’s gruesome history and reveals such villains as the Wilford Village cannibal; Kitty Hudson the pin eating freak; and George Caunt, Nottingham’s most inept suicide.
The audience will be given the opportunity to determine the most ridiculous accidental death of the 18th Century by voting in the first Georgian Darwin Awards ceremony and have the opportunity to win the most depraved piece of literature of the Georgian era. Guests will also have the privilege of witnessing the public autopsy of a local murderess – if their stomachs can stand it!
Adam Nightingale is the writer of ‘Masters of Crime: Literature’s finest villains and their real life inspirations’ and he has also written ‘Murder and Crime in Nottingham’ and ‘Heroes and Villains of Nottingham’, copies of which will be available for signing by the author at this exclusive event.
Tickets are available at £10.00 for adults and £8.00 for concessions on 0115 9939822 or firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling in at The Galleries of Justice Museum .
