Join us in the eerie London Docks after dark. Supernatural, magical, demonic and haunted tales of London's River Thames on board the magnificent historic sailing vessel Lady Daphne.

Live storytelling and music from Vanessa Woolf and George Hoyle. Cash bar with food and drink available. There will also be an opportunity to explore the deck.

Lady Daphne is one of the most famous of London’s classic wooden vessels still sailing. She was one of the many thousands of Thames sailing barges built for the English coastal trade. Now there are fewer than 40 barges left in Britain, and fewer than 10 wooden barges with passenger certificates. Storytelling will take place while the ship is in the dock. To book a trip go to
