Myths & Mysteries Of The Thames

Myths & Mysteries Of The Thames

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 14th Mar 2019

What’s lurking in the water? Discover pagan Thames rituals, sacred rites, magic, myths, urban legends and monsters.

The Thames has been a site of pagan ritual, sacred rites and popular celebrations since ancient times. Ghosts, dreams and strange stories gather on its bridges and lurk within its tunnels, tributaries and sewers. Dastardly deeds and death occur on the bank and in its docks. Discover the waters of London as a place of magic, myth, urban legends and monsters: from the suicidal ghost of Waterloo Bridge and the traitor’s heads of London Bridge, to the phantom willies of Westminster Bridge. For the untrue origin of the song London Bridge is Falling Down, and the unreal origins of sewer pigs and much more, join Robert Stephenson in the upstairs room of the Old King's Head at 8pm on Thursday 14th March.

Cost: £5
