Dutch Courage and Mother's Ruin

Celebrate Richard Barnett's book The Dedalus Book of Gin on this guided walk into the darker side of Enlightenment London.


Eighteenth-century London was awash with cheap, fiery gin. William Hogarth and Henry Fielding railed against it; politicians legislated against it; doctors blamed it for destroying the nation. But what was the truth behind the epidemic of depravity? Celebrate Richard Barnett's book The Dedalus Book of Gin on this guided walk into the darker side of Enlightenment London. We'll tour the historical gin hotspots of Soho and Covent Garden, and end with a book-signing and a glass of gin at Treadwell's Bookshop. Tickets include a copy of The Dedalus Book of Gin and a complimentary glass of gin. The event is supported by Hendrick's.
