Take an after-dark tour of the sinister side of 19th Century London.
Two centuries after the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, it remains as powerful a story as ever. But what were the fears and anxieties of the 1800s that inspired this celebrated tale of science gone wrong?
In this historical tour, we’ll go back in time to the era of the Gothic novel, learning that fears over populism, technological change and fake news are not merely a modern malaise.
You’ll discover what lurked in the shadows of society and bled out onto the pages of works like Mary Shelley's classic tale, as well as how this links to a long Hackney heritage of nonconformism and the contemporary era of disinformation.
Please meet by the Stoke Newington High Street gates 5 minutes before the event starts.
