Victorian London: A Whirlwind Tour of Wonder and Depravity
Thu 18 May 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
Victorian London was the biggest city in the world, and also the most exciting. Join Dr Matthew Green to discover how it blossomed into 'a human awful wonder of God' and 'the necropolis of the world' in the 19th century. The talk will take you on a virtual tour of wharves, workhouses, rookeries, gin palaces and the sulphurous third-class carriages of the revolutionary London Underground. Finally, we will climb in our hansom cab and tour the music halls, savouring performances by dental acrobats, contortionists, and Felix the Mind Reading Duck. We will end in song, a glass of gin in our hand.
Includes wine reception.
