In the fog-filled alleys of Victorian London, amidst the suit-stained brick, the light of gas lamps flicker, haunting the night with shadows, creating phantoms dark as pitch.

By 1838, rumors of ghosts and devils reported in villages beyond the bustling city have now breached London, and the alleys team with whispers of “Spring Heeled Jack”.

With red eyes and breath of blue flame, he tears at his victims with claws of iron, before vanishing into the night. And nearly two centuries later, the mystery remains unsolved!

Join us as we comb through the history, and attempt to separate the fake from folklore, to uncover the reality behind London’s first real Urban Legend, Spring-Heeled Jack.
