Back by very popular demand, join True Crime Investigators John and Sally for another fascinating evening of Wine and True Crime.
Complimentary mini bottle of white, rose, or red wine on arrival from 6.30pm
We welcome back the True Crime Investigators, John and Sally to hear this compelling Pottery Cottage Murders story from 1977 of unbelievable evil and how three generations of the same family were held hostage in Eastmoor, Chesterfield when a remand prisoner went on the run having seriously injured two prison officers to facilitate his escape.

About True Crime Investigators

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.
