Discover the factors that led Ned Kelly to be charged with the murders of Constables Lonigan and Scanlan. From the perspective of the prosecution we can see how the case against Kelly was developed and delivered. The talk will involve a short performance based on the actual trial of Kelly.
Patrick manages the Burke Museum in Beechworth; its annexe is The Ned Kelly Vault and holds the most important collection of Kelly material in the world –ranging from Ned’s favourite gun to Mick Jagger’s armour and the actual table from Anne Jones Hotel, to Sydney Nolan’s very last painting of Ned.
