England to life on the streets of today

See and meet the people who were living by whatever means they could, the opportunist thieves, medicine men, coster girls, drunks and madams to name but a few - all of a dishonest nature.

These type of characters were in the majority but their lives are never really seen through re-enactment or street theatre.

Witness bare knuckle fights, games of chance and many other period correct scenarios, then relish the sight of the 'Peelers' who try to impart law over the disorder.
