A free prelude to London Lore Conference & St George's Day discussion
Scott Wood, urban folklorist, takes a whistle-stop, round-the-year look at the celebratory year, past, present and future, in "Some Seasonal Celebrations in London".
Scott Wood and shamanic poet John Constable discuss St George and St George's Day. Who was our dragon bothering patron saint and, more importantly, who is he to us? Should St George's Day become an English St Patrick's Day? This isn't a debate, more a discussion about the ever-evolving ideas of saints, celebration and Englishness.
NB this replaces the advertised English Folk Dance and Song Society Film Night.
