Wine & True Crime



Friday 10th November Doors open 6:30pm

It’s 1978, the police are in hot pursuit of a multiple murderer as he drives at speed through the villages and towns of Derbyshire.

Who was this killer? Why and where did he commit his heinous crimes?

Why did he come and shatter the peace and tranquillity of the Peak District? The dramatic end to the car chase came in the bustling high street only yards from our historic venue, the Pump Room. The pursuit may have been over but the story, sadly, is not.


Join the True Crime Investigators, John and Sally to hear this compelling story.

John was born and raised in Buxton and served locally, regionally and nationally as a police officer for 30 years. Sally was also a police officer and after 12 years of service retrained as a lawyer and worked in the criminal courts.

Now retired, they host a true crime podcast, True Crime Investigators UK and all the cases reviewed are UK based.  John and Sally visit the scenes of the crime, interview those relevant to the case, witnesses, defendants, victims and their families, police officers, medics, forensic scientists and other experts and draw upon their career experiences to address the issues that a case may highlight.

Join us for an evening never to forget!
