Date: Wednesday 05 April, 2023

Time: 7:30 PM to 8:45 PM

Location: The Square Tower

Ticket Price: £15 - £7.50

It is 1813… Spice Island is a place of sin, a place of degradation, every sin know to man, women and dog is available for a price - and we know where to get the best prices
Join us for an evening as we take you into a dark underworld of smugglers, pirates and prostitutes. Every street in Spice Island was full of Ale Houses, ‘Cat’ Houses and Chapels, but amongst these narrows streets rival gangs would compete for the trade of the thousands of sailors disembarking every week. You will hear dark stories of history that lay hidden beneath the tourist streets of Portsmouth, stories of what happened to some of these sailors before they disappeared forever.

You will learn a little, you will laugh a little - but hopefully you will scream a lot…
