Strange tales and dodgy Derbys

Date: 
Monday, May 29, 2017 - 19:30 to 21:00

Look beneath Epsom’s respectable surface whilst you stroll around its ancient town centre. Discover dark deeds, wrong doings and ghosts who won’t rest in peace. Hear tales of Epsom’s own highwayman and the life of the evil Lord Rochester, together with the wicked Lord Lyttleton. Relive the time when Epsom’s spa was the height of fashion but the behaviour of some visitors was not as elevated as their pedigree such as Lord Baltimore. Hear the tale of the 1844 Derby the most crooked ever run and what else happened in the 1912 race, apart from the death of Emily Davidson. Also how the first Derby after the Great War started a riot!

Please meet by the Clock Tower.
