Current Productions Blood and Butchery in Bedminster

Blood and Butchery in Bedminster, Tuesday evenings

Bedminsterwhere graves were robbed by body snatchers, and corpses buried in concrete coffins.

Where the old Chinese laundry vanished years ago, and where ‘laundering’ now means money, big money, 13 million, ‘laundered’ through a Bedminster bank.

Where criminals were sentenced to hang in public, their cadavers flayed, their skin tanned and made into…

…the answer is in BLOOD AND BUTCHERY IN BEDMINSTER, — so successful we keep adding more dates – particularly around Hallowe’en. So check the booking site for the latest.

Current Productions Blood, Booze and Buccaneers

Join us for lashings of BLOOD, BOOZE AND BUCCANEERS in Bristol docks.

Our walking tour visits a few dockside hostelries along the way, with new revelations about Bristol born Blackbeard that will change your view of pirates forever.

The real Blackbeard couldn’t have been more different from your average, rum soaked TREASURE ISLAND pirate. So many voyages began in Bristol: even Long John Silver sailed to TREASURE ISLAND from Bristol docks. And by the end of our tour you should be able to separate the fact from the fiction — just in time for the 300th anniversary of Blackbeard’s death, later this year.

Meet at The Golden Guinea in Redcliffe, finishing near The Centre.
Cost: £10, advance booking only, buy your own drinks.
Lasts: 2 – 2 ½ hours
Dates & Times: it’s proving popular so we keep adding more. And the 300th anniversary is coming up, so check the booking site (below) for the latest dates.
