Theatre Walks

Crime and Crinolines in Clifton

Crime and Crinolins in Clifton

as good as the best London walks” — audience member

Another triumph from Show Of Strength. Consistently and magnificently superb. A joyful celebration of our finest suburb. I loved every moment.” — @WeirdBristol on Twitter


Discover the extraordinary people behind the elegant facades of ‘The handsomest suburb in Europe’ (John Betjeman).

Fabulous buildings, scenery and stories: a jilted barmaid’s brush with death; a runaway Empress; the only forger sentenced to death to keep his head and get it on a banknote; the Georgian terrace that housed the Holy Grail – plus Keith Floyd’s first restaurant and Eddie Shoestring’s Clifton pad. Proper History.

Starting and ending in the village, Clifton will never look the same again.
