On the evening of 23 February 1820, Bow Street Runners entered a hayloft in Cato Street, London, to arrest a group of armed conspirators who were planning to assassinate the British cabinet at a dinner in Grosvenor Square. Exhibition curator Dr Richard Gaunt re-considers the Cato Street Conspiracy, by uncovering its motivation, history and consequences.
