This Funzing Experience:
Soho is the centre for sex, drugs and vice, and Geoff Barton was the officer in charge of the local C.I.D.

Over the ten years in charge, he dealt with all the “faces” and “personalities” operating in the area.

One night on duty he stormed a house containing every type of crime in Soho - brothels, gambling, unlicensed drinking clubs, drug dens and hostess bars.

Join us for this fascinating talk and get an insight into the criminal history of this famous London nightlife hotspot.

During his vast career, Geoff Barton has experienced managing some of the largest terrorist and firearms incidents in London and investigated serial killers, murders and armed robberies. Arrested a member of the British Cabinet, a Four Star British General and also a member of the British Royal Family!


Venue: The Square Club
Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
