Residents, Rascals and Riots

Residents, Rascals and Riots

11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Explore the streets of Holborn with Jo who grew up here. Meet eccentrics, inventors, writers, rogues and other local residents, including the unscrupulous property developer, the cross-dressing spy and the inventor of a lethal weapon and a fairground ride. Hear about robberies and riots ancient and modern and the trouble with a horse's rear end. We will walk down some well known streets as well as some you might not have seen before and hear some surprising stories about the colourful characters whose lives, work and in some cases, crimes have shaped this area. We will meet some idealists and be shocked by some very bad behaviour indeed.

Cost: £12
