Audrey Jacob: A Trial by Public Perception - Old Courthouse Law Museum

Audrey Jacob: A Trial by Public Perception - Old Court House Law Museum

We invite you to explore hidden details in the Audrey Jacob case, undisclosed evidence and the manipulation of gender stereotypes and social conventions in the court and media.

The Old Court House Law Museum, housed in the oldest building in Perth, will hold a special open weekend on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd of April from 10am - 4pm to celebrate the Boorloo Heritage Festival.

The Museum will shed the spotlight on the infamous Western Australian case of Audrey Jacob. In August 1925 at the Government House Ballroom, Audrey shot and killed her ex-fiancé, Cyril Gidley.

Considered an open-and-shut case, this temporary exhibition invites visitors to consider hidden documents, evidence and media reports to weigh up the facts versus the influence of societal conventions on the trial.

Event Details: Suitable for General Audiences, Free Admission - Bookings Not Required
