Too Many Broken Hearts Have Fallen in the River

South East London Folklore Society are hosting a Valentine's event with a twist this Thursday 12th February with Chris Roberts your guide for a walk with the title 'Too Many Broken Hearts Have Fallen in the River' and featuring headless queens, golden castration devices, deceased lovers and phantom ex-wives. All these as well as voodoo, why life is cheaper on the surrey shore, sex, suicide and showmen on Tower Bridge and the usual medley of monsters, myth and folkloric fun and games you'd expect from SELFS opener for 2009.

It starts at 7.30pm at Hayes Galleria, London Bridge and ends about 90 minutes later (via London and Tower Bridges) with a chat about south east London folklore and mysteries at the Old Kings Head, Borough High Street. Walk is about ninety minutes and cunning weaves it's way along from London Bridge over Tower Bridge and back over London through Borough Market.

You might also want to put the date of the next SELFS event in your diary. On 12th March, David Boyle will be talking at the Old Kings Head on 'Fairy Superstition: Puck, Robin Goodfellow, the little people and other visitors'.
