Archives at Night: Victorian Crime announced
On Friday 28 October, delve into the Victorian underworld at our very special Museums at Night event!
Crime. Punishment. Corruption…
Using original material from our records, discover the true stories behind some of the most high-profile Victorian criminal cases – such as Jack the Ripper, the Spanish Swindle, the trial and imprisonment of Oscar Wilde and Murder at Road Hill House (inspiration behind bestselling book The Suspicions of Mr Whicher) – as well as the evolving roles of prison and punishment across the 19th century.
A full evening of entertainment will include performances, a document display of original crime records, themed cocktail bar, Victorian ‘street food’, talks by experts in Victorian crime, a photo booth, prizes, giveaways and much more.
More activities will be added to the programme, which is subject to change. Keep an eye on our events page for more information.
Please note, this event is suitable for adults only (18+). Costume is encouraged but optional.
