Gallows Bait

The legend of Dick Turpin and the Gregory Gang has passed into English folklore, with highwaymen remembered as dandy fellows cutting a dash through the lush countryside of the 18th century. Now, a new film is going to redress the balance and show that Turpin and the Gregorys were not so dandy but, in the words of one of its creators, "the scum of the earth".

Gallows Bait will film across the UK next year and the creative team are looking for people who are passionate about the Georgian era to be a part of the project and even appear on camera. If you fancy attending the hanging of Dick Turpin and the notorious gang or recreating the sights and sounds of the long 18th century, Tony Rotherham would love to hear from you as he's helping to bring this exciting project to life. 

Casting for the central roles is currently underway but professional performers are invited to get in touch regarding the pivotal roles of Dick Turpin, Matthew King and Elizabeth Brazier. In addition, the production team invite anyone who thinks they can help to bring Gallows Bait to the screen to get in touch!

The team can be contacted via Tony at; don't miss out on the chance to bring Turpin's story into full-blooded life!
