Adventures in Urban Folklore

SELFS host Scott goes through the contemporary ritual year in London, stopping off at twentieth and twenty-first century folklore.

Meet the Deptford Jack-in-the-Green. Hear of how Bridget and Imbolc scared the horses in Wimbledon.

Remember Solstices in south London, Goddess worship in Southwark and Greenwich, recoil at accounts of young men being "banged out" on Clerkenwell streets, discover the truth about the friendly terrorists warning in Harrods and much more.

This is an introduction to a huge, exhilarating and very much living world of London folklore today.
