London's Legendary Landscape

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

London's statues and stones have stories stuck to them along with the chewing gum and pigeon poo. Tonight Scott Wood tells tales and dissects legends of the walking statue of Brandy Nan, insulting sculptures, sculptors driven to suicide by a mistake, Hitler's office for when he ruled London and as much more as he can squeeze in about London's legendary landscape. Urban legends may not be true but they tell do truths about out what people think and feel about the landscape and landmarks around them.

Scott is the author of London Urban Legends: The Corpse on the Tube, the author of the Fortean London column for Londonist co-organiser and host of the London Fortean Society and ran South East London Folklore Society for eight noisy and chaotic years.
