Eager Ears Curious?

The Black Horse Passage of York enjoyed a long and far from illustrious reputation during the long Victorian era.

Frequented by prostitutes, pimps and pick-pockets – this unassuming snickelway of York was a convenient shortcut for those brave enough to walk the narrow flagstones from the slums of Hungate to the noisy and teeming thoroughfare of Fossgate and Walmgate.

Unsurprisingly, it is a snickelway much walked by our erstwhile history sleuth Lady Brigante as she leads fellow unsuspecting wanderers of the night on a true crime walk through Victorian history.

However, for curious ears eager for untold tales of murder and mayhem from the comfort of an armchair – our company founder Tee Bylo will oblige for one night only on WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 4 at 7.30pm at the Friends Meeting House in New Earswick.

An evening of death and despair? Tee will see you there!

Curious much?
