meet: Bedern Hall Saint Andrewgate York YO1 7AL

On Friday October 28 at 7pm – Tee Bylo will present an evening of ‘Wantons & Wits’.

Nestled in the delightful area of St Andrewgate, the tiny court of Bedern has long enjoyed an illustriously haunting history.

However, during the Victorian era, and as a throng of brothel-keepers, and criminals claimed the streets around Bedern as their own – this once respectable area of York would become an urban underworld of vice and crime.

Drawing on exclusive archival material, newspaper reports and an unpublished autobiography – ‘Wantons & Wits’ will shine a light on the notorious history of this enclave in the 19th century and of our understanding of Victorian morality as Tee shares the tales of those long-forgotten folk.
