Dead Men Can't Talk: Downfall of the Krays


This exhibition will be open from July 2013 – January 2014

Ronnie and Reggie Kray were kings of the Sixties underworld – gangland bosses whose escalating crimes of fraud, extortion, violence and murder spanned over a decade in London’s East End. Complex personalities who became increasingly unhinged, the twins were eventually imprisoned in 1969 for the murders of George Cornell and Jack ‘The Hat’ McVitie. The cult of the Krays survived even their deaths in 1995 and 2000.

The core thread of this exhibition is the comparative opinions and perspectives that the family, friends, gang members and press had about the Krays. The exhibition does not explore the Krays glamorous life of mixing with celebrities or how they supposedly kept the East End safe. It stripes away that veil of deception and portrays the reality of how two boys perceived by their teacher (Principal Mr William Evans – Daneford Street School) as “Salt of the earth” were later described as “a profound danger to society… the most suitable candidates for capital punishment I ever encountered”, by the presiding judge of their trial in 1969.
