Bank Crash Drama 9th October

Tickets are selling briskly for Unlocking Warwick’s courtroom drama on the final day of the Warwick Words History Festival on October 9th.

It is a reconstruction of the public hearings and court case that followed the sudden collapse of the Warwick and Warwickshire Bank in 1887, when thousands of people lost their savings. Members of the audience will play the part of angry creditors and will be encouraged to ooh and boo as the shocking evidence comes to light. 

The Warwick Bank Crash of 1887 will be performed in the ballroom of the Jury Street Court House from 2pm to 3.30pm on Sunday 9th October. Tickets cost £14 to include tea and biscuits in the interval. Get them in the Visitor Centre or online at
