Talk by author James Morton on The Krays
The Krays were kings of London's underworld, 'evil twins' who loved their mother and resorted to violence with terrifying ease. Ronnie and Reggie's crimes of fraud and extortion finally led to three bloody murders, yet life imprisonment in 1969 was just the beginning of the Kray legend.
Suitable for adults Tickets £7.00 / £5.00 concessions available from the library or online
