TRUTH !!
in 1883 !
Known as the Victoria Hall disaster, 1,100 children were attending a
children's variety concert at this venue. At the conclusion of the show
gifts were distributed from the stage at the same time lucky prize winning
tickets were announced. The children all rushed down the stairs to get
through a very narrow door which opened inwards. They were squashed and
trampled upon by each other in the crush, with the resulting death of 183
children. One man present tore the door off the hinges with his bare hands
to save them, but it was too late. This national outrage brought about the
outward-opening emergency exit doors. A monument in Mowbray Park,
Sunderland, marks this tragedy.
