Event Description
EUREKA: DEMOCRACY ON TRIAL

Eureka: Democracy on Trial is a scripted reenactment of the 1855 trial of Timothy Hayes on charges of treason, performed by a cast of barristers from the Victorian Bar in Melbourne.


The Eureka Stockade of 3 December 1854 remains Australia’s only armed uprising and resulted in the deaths of approximately 30 diggers and 4 soldiers.  Subsequently, 13 of the rioters were tried for treason in February and March of 1855. The trials were both sensational and hugely significant; the first trial drew a crowd of over 10,000 people to the Court to hear the verdict. 


Join BottledSnail Productions and the Bendigo Supreme Court and experience this landmark event as it happened, 160 years on. 


This event is part of Law Week, presented by Victoria Law Foundation.
