The Darker Side of Warwick...martyrs, murderers, crimes, ghosts and more!

A u3a event - The Darker Side of Warwick - Graham Sutherland, author of Warwick - Bloody British History sheds light on some of the less savoury aspects of the town's history. Hundreds of dark and scandalous events have happened in Warwick over the centuries, from the murder of Piers Gaveston, the king's lover to the incredible histories of the Earls of Warwick. The Gunpowder Plot started here and the castle's horses stolen when the plotters tried to escape.

Come and hear about martyrs, murderers and corrupt officials, crimes, ghosts, prize-fighters and eccentrics, you'll never see the town in the same way again!
