Lovehistory shines the spotlight on Liverpool’s dark past
Lovehistory, producers of The Catacombs of Liverpool’s Darkest History, are set to return in May 2016 with the next instalment of the Catacomb Tours at St George’s Hall
These increasingly popular tours have been shortlisted for a Small Tourism Event of the Year award sponsored by Liverpool City Region LEP in the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards 2016.
The seventh in the series, the latest tour The Killers of Victorian Liverpool runs from 23-29 May and will delve deeper into Liverpool’s dark history and bring to life some of the most sadistic and gruesome stories Liverpool has witnessed.
The Catacombs of Liverpool’s Darkest History reveals a hidden past unseen for over a hundred years. A history of violence and murder, a history of deprivation and desperation and a history unseen… until now, when the city’s most animated storytellers will bring these deplorable crimes back into the spotlight.
A team of versatile actors in period costume, along with effective lighting and sound effects, will transport you back to the gruesome setting of the past with the infamous criminal stories.
Judy McLean, Creative Director of Lovehistory, said:
“We are thrilled to be working on our seventh in the series of these shows with the Hall. It’s been fantastic to work with such a talented team of young actors and to see how the shows have developed over the last two years. People love them and love finding out about the history in such a unique way.”
With four stories, audiences will encounter a vicious and savage underworld of murder, theft and violence, guaranteed to chill viewers to the bone.
