John Crow Speaks

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

John Constable; playwright, poet, performer and purveyor of unusual walks.

His best known work, The Southwark Mysteries, received in a vision on 23 November 1996, was performed in Shakespeare's Globe and Southwark Cathedral.
He is also widely known as John Crow, the urban shaman who raised the spirit of The Goose at Cross Bones, south London's outcasts' graveyard. In this magical persona, he has conducted The Halloween of Cross Bones on thirteen consecutive Halloweens, rituals at Glastonbury and other festivals, and vigils at Cross Bones, where he curates a shrine at the gates and campaigns to protect the site as a garden of remembrance. His Sha-Manic Plays, The Southwark Mysteries, his stage adaptation of Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast, and Secret Bankside – Walks In The Outlaw Borough are all published by Oberon Books.

This evening he will be talking about a variety of interesting things, telling tales, histories & poems. There will be an opportunity to ask John questions too.
