Dead Fairy in Borough High Street?

This week at South East London Folklore Society:

10th May: Dan Baines - Dead Fairy Found in Derbyshire!

Illusionist Dan Baines, of the Lebonan Circle, gives his account of how he fooled the world (well most of them) with his mummified fairy. From the conception of the idea through to the press reaction and public response Dan will give a full account of his miscievous antics. He promises to bring along one of the fairies he discovered in the Derbyshire barrow on Firestone Hill for all to see. Pagan Priests have warned that the remains need to returned as soon as possible so this may be your last chance to see them....

Future events:

14th June: John Callow - Isobel Gowdie, the Queen of the Witches. John Callow, historian of early modern magic and witchcraft, brings alive the tale of the infamous Isobel Gowdie, accused of witchcraft in 17th-century Scotland.

12th July: Catherine Rider - Magic and Impotence in the Middle Ages
