Date(s): Tues 13th April 2021 | 7pm - 8pm

Ouseburn Talks Online is a series led by passionate volunteers who are facilitated by the Ouseburn Trust.

Murder in the Pottery is described as follows:

“The brutal murder of a watchman at the Ouseburn Pottery Works in the winter of 1816, incited great interest in the locality. It would eventually culminate in the trial and execution of Charles Smith. As his life ebbed away on the end of a noose on the Town Moor, the macabre masses in attendance were happy to see justice prevail. But was Smith even guilty of the crime? ”

Tickets are £3 per device/household. Book on the Ouseburn Trust website.
