Fred Dinenage - Ronnie Reggie & Me - Devonshire Park Theatre Eastbourne

 

National TV icon Fred Dinenage gave the definitive insight into the real life of Britain's most notorious gangsters, Ronnie & Reggie Kray. 

For decades they were feared as the ultimate criminal gang lords of the London underworld, but their reign of terror came crashing to an end when in 1969 both Ronnie and Reggie Kray were given life sentences by a judge at the Old Bailey.

Reggie went on to serve decades in some of the toughest prisons in the country, while Ronnie became a patient at Broadmoor with an insanity that was only kept under control by massive doses of drugs.

TV legend Fred Dinenage was chosen by the twins to tell their official story, and he became one of the very few people allowed into their inner circle. Fred gained an unparalleled insight into the real lives of the legendary kings of crime, and in this show he revealed stories and situations for the first time that have never been told publicly before.

We heard stories that fascinated and were full of intrigue, whilst learning about the gritty reality of being a gangster in the criminal underworld of the swinging 60s, from the only man they trusted to tell their tale.
