Crime and Crinolines in Clifton

Date: Wednesday, Oct 7 - Wednesday, Dec 16
Venue: Clifton Village

The brilliant Show of Strength return with another of their theatrical walkabout tours of Bristol’s most colourful and historic districts.

You can already trace Bedminster’s darker past every Tuesday night, courtesy of their Blood and Butchery in Bedminster tour; now you can also get the lowdown on some little-known episodes in the history of Clifton.

Crime and Crinolines in Clifton “reveals the extraordinary people behind the elegant facades. Discover fabulous buildings, scenery and stories: a jilted barmaid’s brush with death; a runaway Empress; the only forger sentenced to death to keep his head and have it on a banknote; and the Georgian terrace that housed the Holy Grail.

“Starting and ending in the village, Clifton will never look the same again.”

Wednesdays, Oct 7-Dec 16, 6pm, meet/start: large terraced area, top of steps in front of Lawes & Co Accountants, Boyces Buildings, Regent St, BS8 4HU.

Tour takes place outdoor. Ends close by. Adults only. Maximum group size 15. Social distancing must be observed with no more than six people together.
Possible pause half way round for outside/inside drink if group keen.
