Scandal at Dolphin Square
- This event has passed.
Arguably the most notorious address in the country, Dolphin Square is the epicentre of many of Britain’s most high-profile scandals – from Oswald Mosley, the Carry On gang and Profumo, to allegations of VIP sexual abuse rings.
Built in 1937 in London’s Pimlico, the Square has enticed well-to-do individuals to its 1,250 flats with each passing decade. From the outset, it attracted the great and the good, in particular a long roll-call of Members of Parliament and celebrities.
Simon Danczuk and Daniel Smith tell the story of the people who lived at Dolphin Square. The tale is replete with mysterious deaths, espionage, illicit love affairs, glamour, politics and scandal. A saga of colour and shade, populated by a cast of Dickens-esque, larger-than-life characters, that shines a light on the evolving nature of British politics and society over the last century.
