Sussex Murders and Misdemeanours – Paul Green

March 18 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

March 18th  @8pm – 9pm, on Zoom

Real cases from 18/19th century.   The speaker, Paul Green in pre-Covid times,  dresses as a Victorian judge at live talks! and presents the evidence, asking the audience to be the jury. Although we will sadly miss out on this, he will still be presenting the evidence and inviting some of the audience to act as Jury.  Some cases are not as clear cut as one might think!

About the speaker: Paul Green started as the Argus historian and due to the popularity of his various talks, he now work freelance, although still working closely with the Argus so that he can use their photos, reports  etc.

About the talk: Real life cases from 18th and 19th century and which actually happened in Sussex. Who knows some of our late ancestors may well have been familiar with them.

After the first case Paul will ask some of the audience to make up the Jury and then give their verdict, after he has presented the evidence on behalf of the defence and prosecution. It is good fun and the cases are not as clear cut as you may think.


The audience is asked to remain muted during the presentation of evidence, after which those who want to be in the Jury can raise a hand and, when invited by Judge Paul, can ask a question about the case. This is to avoid people speaking over each other – jury members can get quite excited!

Zoom details will be posted here in due course – Mark Orchin 10.2.21
