ImmerCity bring a new immersive murder mystery to a found space in Bethnal Green.

The Unholy Marriage of Slice and Sweetly failed to take place on the 13th July 1955 due to the fatal stabbing of Reverend Gris… The Murder mystery must be solved!

The wedding of East End gangster, Jim Slice, in July 1955 is remembered for two things: the Slice family’s notorious reputation and the fatal stabbing of the priest before the ceremony could start. Despite numerous allegations and suspicions, the murder of Reverend Gris was never solved. ImmerCity are calling on audiences to step back in time, to that fateful day, and investigate the truth behind this close-knit community torn apart by World War Two, who are rebuilding life from the rubble. Uncover a seething pit of family in-fighting, war-time secrets, blackmail, smuggling, and, of course, murder… Coming to the church and surrounding graveyard of St Matthews in the heart of Bethnal Green. 1950’s wedding attire encouraged.

This three hour mystery evening is spread across three parts with audiences working in groups of 6 to gather information and solve the mystery. In the first section the audience are voyeurs on the events of the fateful day as the characters set the scene and set the audiences minds whirring to work out who was where and doing what. In the second section the audience become the detectives, examining the evidence from section one and interviewing the characters to work out what information is hiding beneath the surface and what lies can be called out. The final section is the conclusion of the evening, layers pulled back, truths revealed and the mystery solved.

Tickets: For full tour details and tour dates visit https://www.florence-nightingale.co.uk/

Walk back in time through Florence Nightingale’s London.

Florence Nightingale Museum launches new walking tour celebrating the connections ‘the mother of modern nursing’ had in the city of London

This spring the Florence Nightingale Museum is launching a new walking tour, giving members of the public the chance to follow in the footsteps of the mother of modern nursing and discover many of the places connected with the legendary Lady with the Lamp in London.

Statistician, prolific letter-writer and social campaigner, the tour chronicles the back-story of this iconic figure and the London she knew almost 200 years ago. From the house where she spent the last days of her life, to the hospital where she founded her nursing school, the walking tour promises some fascinating insights into the life and work of a remarkable woman etched across the city where she lived.

The two-hour walk begins at the Mayfair home, where Florence lived for a large part of her life and then meanders through Shepherd Market, Piccadilly and St James’s Square, past Horse Guards Parade and Buckingham Palace, and via Westminster and Whitehall, before finishing at the Florence Nightingale Museum. Here visitors can end their tour seeing some of Florence’s personal belongings including her pet owl ‘Athena’ and her lamp from Scutari Hospital, explore the museum and experience the new exhibition on Spanish flu which shines a light on nursing through history’s deadliest pandemic, and has recently been shortlisted as ‘Temporary Exhibition of the Year’ in the 2019 Museum and Heritage Awards.

“This Blue Badge tour is an incredible way for people to really understand Florence Nightingale and the incredible impact she had. From her presentation at court at Buckingham Palace to her humanitarian work during the Crimean War, as well as her role in workhouse reforms, there is so much more to know about Florence and her complex life which is why we wanted to develop this walking tour.”

David Green, Director
