Theatre Walks

Saints and Sinners in St George

Did you know the world’s most prolific serial killer was born and raised in St George? That Queen Elizabeth I processed in state along Church Road? And that the Fire Engine pub had nothing to do with putting out fires?

Saints and Sinners in St George is a new THEATRE WALK from Show Of Strength Theatre Company and with EU Welcome Back funding the tickets are free!

Discover 800 years of history in two hours with a rare medieval survivor, a Tudor monarch and the grand tombs and monuments of the industrialists whose Victorian collieries and factories swept away the old market gardens and changed the landscape forever. Even locals will see something they’ve never seen before.

St George once started at the boundary of the Royal Forest of Kingswood and has survived industrialisation and decline to become a much loved and lived in area with a thriving high street for shopping and leisure.

Come and meet St George’s Saints, Sinners and the many ordinary folk in between whose lives were every bit as extraordinary.
