Join London Dreamtime for a delightful selection of comedies, sea shanties, music hall songs and folklore. Come and handle objects, sing along, discover immigrant tales and stories of urban foxes, ghosts, nixies, the Queen Rat and other strange creatures of the river.

Vanessa Woolf is a professional storyteller who is particularly inspired by the history and folklore of London. By day she tells lively funny stories for museums, schools and festivals, working with organisations like the Guildhall Library, the Southbank Centre, the National Trust and the London Transport Museum. After dark she tells spooky tales in London's derelict, secret and forgotten corners.

Nigel of Bermondsey loves London and folklore. His songs and stories are about the fabric of folk, our histories and our places. He is passionate about the stories that exist in the corners of our memories. He has performed in shopping centres, cemeteries, parks, stately homes, boats, markets, arcane bookshops, abandoned housing estates, ruined docklands, promenading along the streets of Southwark, under canvas & after dark. He has also performed in Arment’s pie & mash shop, off the Walworth Road.
