The Blood and Butchery Tour returns on Thursdays at 6pm from 8 October 2020
Delve into Bedminister's gruesome history with the theatre company Show of Strength. Every tuesday, Blood and Butchery explores the tales of murder, mystery, betrayal and bullion, visiting pubs and landmarks on the way.
Punters can expect to be regaled with the gruesome tale of John Horwood; sentenced to hang in 1821 at what is now The Steam Crane. However the fate of Horwood travels far beyond the gallows, where he met a violent and macabre end. A forgotten Victorian murder, the fate of Princess Caraboo and the mysterious disappearance of Mr Lomas will all be explored, as well as Bedminster’s extraordinary role in Britain’s biggest bullion robbery.
