South East London Folklore Society


The South East London Folklore Society has met on the second Thursday of the month at 8pm for approaching 30 years. I have been running it for about 8 years & although we can’t meet in the upstairs room of the Old King’s Head for the moment, online events are scheduled.

January 14th: Folklore of Your Five A Day. Part 1 Vegetables

What folklore & superstitions are there about our greens?

This slideshow & Q&A will take a look at our vegetables & see what we can use to divine our fortunes, cure our ills & place the odds in our favour for the years ahead.

On the night you will receive a private link to a specially prepared online slideshow & an invite to a Zoom Q&A.

This event costs £5/3concession; you can email to book. If you can’t afford the concession I will let you in for free: just ask.
