London, UK – It’s been 60 years since the historic Great Train Robbery, and now you can step back in time and experience the thrill and intrigue of this audacious heist. Join us at the iconic Star Tavern in Belgravia for an interactive event hosted by an ex-Scotland Yard detective with years of experience investigating London’s most notorious crimes.
Set in the very room where the great train robbery was planned, the Star Tavern will transport you to the night of August 8, 1963. As the lights dim and the scene is set, you’ll be immersed in the world of a gang of 15 robbers who stopped a train carrying millions of pounds in banknotes. The ex-detective, who has personally reviewed the case, will guide you through the twists and turns of the investigation, revealing the tactics used by the robbers and the complex police operation that brought them to justice.
But this experience goes beyond mere storytelling. Throughout the event, you’ll have the opportunity to step into the shoes of the detectives, getting hands-on with some of the forensics they used to catch the robbers. You’ll even be taken to the nearby scene of a major GTR arrest, bringing the investigation to life right before your eyes.
And while the case unfolds, you can relax in the historic Star Tavern – a favoured pub of literary legends such as Agatha Christie and Charles Dickens. Enjoy soft drinks, a plate of delicious food, or even the famous Fuller’s beer while chatting with your fellow detectives. It’s the perfect setting to unwind and discuss the mysteries that surround the Great Train Robbery.
