Enter the fog-filled streets of late Victorian London. This is the capital as imagined by the insane: a world of nightmares, a gothic landscape of dark alleys, cemeteries, docks and cobbled streets where Dr Jekyll mixes with Jack the Ripper and anarchists sip absinthe with Dorian Gray and Dracula! Here are opium dens next to the haunts of assassins, black magicians and serial killers. Come to the London of the fin de siecle and meet the writers, poets and strange eccentrics who made the capital seem so weird, perverse and disturbing.
Described by The Times as a polymath, Clive Bloom is Emeritus Professor of English & American Studies at Middlesex University and a best-selling author and publisher.
Doors open at 7pm. Ticket includes a glass of wine or soft drink.
