This Funzing Experience:
The controversy surrounding the murders at 10 Rillington Place has raged for years. Books and films have portrayed the events as a landmark case in the abolition of the death penalty - and rightly so. But, what exactly went on behind the doors of this famous address? Was Reg Christie responsible for everything? Or could it be that Timothy Evans played a part? Could any of the deaths have been avoided? Where did it all go wrong?

In a talk which will be accompanied by photographs rarely seen, this presentation will grab the audience - and may even shock them. How was it possible that so many women lost their lives without a hint of suspicion?

Paul Stickler is a crime historian and criminologist with 30 years police experience including a secondment to the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia and researches British murder investigations in the early to mid twentieth century. His book, ‘The Murder that Defeated Whitechapel’s Sherlock Holmes: At Mrs Ridgley’s Corner’ is an examination of a Hertfordshire murder in 1919 in the context of the law and police procedures at the time. Other research has led to the recent BBC programme, The Porthole Mystery, a murder in 1947 committed on the high seas.

Venue: Arnos Vale Cemetery, Bristol

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
