What’s On at Midland Ancestors –
Kenilworth: ‘Bloody Kenilworth’ (LIVE)
Wed 10th April @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm BST
Speaker: Adam Wood, author, speaker and tour guide, true crime historian
Join local true crime historian Adam Wood for an illustrated talk on the seedier side of Kenilworth, as he reveals misdeeds committed between 1790 and 1928.
Learn how the former caretaker of the Kenilworth Baths on Abbey Fields, bristling with resentment over his dismissal, made sure his successor met a watery end; how a one-armed man became one of the earliest motor fatalities when he was struck by a speeding driver outside the Royal Oak, and what happened when a drunken cyclist was annoyed when the lamplighter extinguished the last light on Warwick Road one dark night in 1910.
And that’s not to mention the man who discovered Jack the Ripper’s hideout on Kenilworth Common…
This is a LIVE meeting at The Kenilworth Centre
