Mystery History Tour in Bristol
Sunday 19 February 2012, 2.30pm
Starting in Corn Street, Bristol, BS1 1JG. Booking required
Bristol historian and author Andrew Foyle leads an easy stroll through the city, lifting the curtain on our own peculiar and sometimes outrageous histories. Find out where men met for sex in the 18th century and how they were punished, Bristol’s pre-war gay pub, sites of protest by lesbian Suffragettes, what window shopping in Park Street used to mean, and a remarkably early moment in the history of transgender surgery.
Meet outside the Register Office (Old Council House), Corn Street; nearly opposite the Exchange and the Nails.
£3, to go to OutStories Bristol funds.
