The Unbelievers Ghost Walk

This event has finished Took place on: Saturday, 9th Dec 2017

’tis the season to be spooky fa-la-la-la-laaARGH!

Why should people who believe in ghosts have all the fun? Come walk the atmospheric and ancient streets of Smithfield and Farringdon hearing of the stories of screaming Anne, ghosts of inconveniently alive judges, carpet lifting pub ghosts, the horrible secret of Bleeding Heart Yard and the ghost of Scratching Fanny on Cock Lane (to name but a few).

This circular-ish walk will be funny, irreverent, and informative and will wonder what ghosts are what ghost stories say about who we are and how we think about the world.

No ghosts were harmed in the making of this walk; This is a walk for anyone interested in ghost stories and London be they sceptical or otherwise. All are welcome.

Your guide is London Fortean Society and Forteana Podcast host Scott Wood. Scott is the irregular writer for Londonist and the author of London Urban Legends: The Corpse of the Tube.

Cost: £5.50
