Execution, Butchery or Torture?

Celebrity historian Richard Felix presents his show of Execution, Butchery or Torture? at the Kingswood Heritage Museum on Saturday evening.

Richard will talk you through and demonstrate many of the forms of execution carried out by British rulers throughout history, designed to ensure law was feared.

Such examples will include the most notorious punishment of being hung, drawn and quartered. It will then be up to you to decide whether such methods were truly execution, butchery or torture.

The show starts at 7:30pm, with refreshments available at Kingswood Heritage Museum.

Tickets for Richard Felix’s event are priced at £10 per person, and can be purchased by following this link.

Atlanta R&B artist Jacquees will perform at the O2 Academy on Monday night.

The self-proclaimed “king of R&B” released his first album 4275 last year following the huge success of his 2016 breakout hit B.E.D. The singer has travelled across the pond this summer to promote his first album to a UK audience.

Many of Jacquees’ past work has been collaborative projects with other R&B talents. He features on the critically acclaimed 2018 hit Location alongside Chris Brown, whilst Trey Songz features on Inside. Both songs have achieved huge popularity in America, with the tour a chance to spread Jacquees’ music into Europe.

Tickets are still available for Monday’s show, available from Ticketmaster for £25.
