Talk on penal history at the Leicester Guildhall

Inside the Guildhall

On Tuesday 3 December I made my scheduled appearance at the Leicester Guildhall, a historical site, to present some ideas about penal history to some students and staff from De Montfort University, Gavin Dingwall and Tim Hillier had prepared the ground well for an atmospheric venue, with a bit of chill and some nice fading afternoon light in the upper windows of the old hall - memorable. A visit to the Guildhall is highly recommended, especially for aficionados of older penal devices, such as the scold's bridle and metal gibbet cage. That should prove to be my last public performance for 2019.
