We have contacted all ticket holders with the following information:

The Psychology of Serial Killers – Change of date:

Due to the current Government Covid 19 Restrictions, we have had to make the difficult decision to move this event to April 25th 2021 to allow us to operate the event over two showings, safely and socially distant.

The organiser has been following Government guidelines and working with the venue to get this event off the ground for everyone to enjoy. However, we can only allow groups who are in their Household Bubbles or Support Bubbles to attend together.

Your original tickets are valid for the new date, just keep it safe! If the new date doesn’t work for you then we can issue you a refund. 

To allow these events to take place, we have to split the audience into matinee and evening performances. So we can allocate within the Government guidelines, we request that you email ticketing@leadmill.co.uk with  “The Psychology of Serial Killers” in the subject line with the following information:

The full name of the lead booker:
I would like to go to time one (3:30pm): Yes/No
I would like to go to time two (7:30pm): Yes/No
I would like a refund: Yes/No

Please note, these time slots are allocated on a first come first serve basis. If we are unable to meet your request, we will offer you the alternative slot. If that time isn’t viable for you or you were coming as a group that are not in a bubble, we will issue you a refund.

Please email your request by Friday 16th Octber, 5pm to secure your place or refund. The organiser has stated no refunds after this date.

Kind Regards, Leadmill Team


During this talk, you will discover how serial killers are classified. What are the differences between lust killers like the BTK (Bind, Torture, Kill) Killer, and visionary killers such as David Berkowitz (Son of Sam)? Jennifer will explore the different categories, using case studies to illustrate.

Jennifer Rees will also debunk common Serial Killer Myths – you may be surprised by what you learn!

Jennifer will discuss the typical differences between males and female serial killers, again, incorporating case studies to illustrate.

You will also investigate the phenomenon of killer couples such as Fred and Rose West and The Moors Murderers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, as well exploring the Folie à deux syndrome, a.k.a ‘shared psychosis’.

Why do women fall in love with known serial killers? Jennifer will discuss the clinical knowledge surrounding why serial killers gain admirers, fan mail, and even spouses in light of their atrocious crimes. Learn about Hybristophilia, and the astounding case of the Night Crawler’s trial.

How common are homicidal fantasies? Have you ever fantasised about killing someone? You may be surprised by the results of the research!

Identifying John and Jane Does – how are victims identified? You will watch a fascinating time-lapse video of facial reconstruction on the skull of a discovered body.
