Dick is back - New Dick Turpin show at The York Dungeon
Dick Turpin, the infamous 18th century highwayman, will return to York in an exciting new show at The York Dungeon, this month. Visitors will be encouraged to hold on tight to their belongings while they take a seat in the carriage and travel along the York Road, where rumour has it the most notorious York villain has returned. Featuring new gags and special effects, visitors will learn all about Dick Turpin’s crimes and how he treated his victims.
The brand new Dick Turpin show at York Dungeon, opens on Tuesday 18th July
, 12 Clifford Street, York YO1 9RD. www.thedungeons.com/york
might have met his maker at the Houses of Parliament but his story began in York where he was born in 1570!
In this show you'll encounter:
How was the plot foiled?
Who were the conspirators on a secret mission?
What happened to Guy Fawkes after he was caught? (euukk!!)
This is an experience filled with intrigue, conspiracy and danger. Discover The Gunpowder Plot, and what really happened beneath the Houses of Parliament on that November night in 1605.
(Obviously you shouldn't concern yourselves with a certain unlit fuse next to all the gunpowder. Just relax and enjoy the history… it's never been so explosive.)
