About the event

Join us on a trip to Victorian London as hansom cab driver Jeremiah Carter takes us on a journey into the gaslight and fog of the Ripper's Autumn of Terror.

Author Toby Virgo founded The Real Sherlock Holmes Walking Tour of Edinburgh, and he is the perfect guide to the time period. This is sure to be an atmospheric evening, perfect for the longer nights of autumn.

Hear Toby talk about his inspiration and research into life as a cabman in Victorian London. There will be readings from his book, and a sample of what's to come next in the trilogy. There'll also be the opportunity to ask questions, purchase books, and get your copy signed.

Carter, the Cabman is available in the shop as a limited edition (numbered) illustrated hardback. It was described as 'brilliant and beautiful' by legendary Turner Prize winning artists Gilbert and George.

You can find out more about Carter and the Victorian London setting for the book on the Facebook page.
