Lunchtime concert, female prisoners held in the Reginald’s tower during the 19th Century held “jigs and reels” in their cells to past the tedious hours. Join us and Fado as we recreate the ballroom.
200 years ago, Reginald’s Tower was converted into a Police Establishment and Lock-up. From 1819 to c. 1863, Reginald’s Tower was used as a place of confinement, which housed murders, thieves, sturdy rouges, and on one occasion a goat. For this years Heritage Week, we are highlighting this period of Reginald’s Towers past with Talks, Workshops, Mysteries and Music.
