“Thrown out of the alley due to disease, the residents of Gin Lane are looking for a new place to call home, temporarily!”
Gin Lane on the streets brings some of the best elements of the debauched Victorian alley installation usually found at Worcester Victorian Fair and throws them out for your pleasure!
Clik Clik brings you a cheeky slice of typical alley banter courtesy of that alley mistress and flower seller wench Kate, everyone’s favourite apple hawker Charley with the best wares in town, and Victorian festive singing with Play it again Dan.
Keep a safe distance as these alley dwellers have all sorts of naughty habits! You’ll only find three of them lurking about, as they can’t gather all the alley residents together on the streets while this plague is rampant….
The full Gin Lane residents, including those urchins from Worcester Theatre Makers, Lee Partridge and his travelling Flea Circus, the mesmerising Music Hall ladies the Penny Girls and all the shady characters that lurk in the shadowswill be missed this year but once the scourge has gone and the alley disinfected good and proper then they will return to the dodgy dwelling they call home…
Clik Clik Director Kate Cox said: “That dodgy old alley is going to be sorely missed this year especially the performers who are part of the furniture of this weird and wonderful Victorian installation! Not to mention the banter we have with the public brave enough to explore. But all the residents will be back in 2021 and we’ll manage to deliver some grown up play on the streets this Saturday!”
Thanks to Worcester City Council for being brave enough to invite these scoundrels onto the streets again.
But remember, don’t gather! Heckle, cheer, sing while you walk, or just flash your best cockney smile!
Catch them roaming the city centre on Saturday 5th December between 11am and 4pm!
