With the new One Eye Grey hitting a bookshop, website or walk near you soon, it really is getting increasingly tricky to draw the line between actual and folklore London, with stories blurring into each other across time and imagination (verdict on the latest OEG: top, spooky, delightful). Helpfully, then, Antony Clayton, author of 'The Folklore of London' will be addressing South East London Folklore Society tonight to discuss just that problem in terms of legendary Londoners. Separate fact from folklore about the lives and exploits of Dick Turpin, Nell Gwyn and other famous, historical figures at the SELFS meeting tonight. From 8pm upstairs at the Old Kings Head, off Borough High Street and only £2.50 to get in. Not scary, we promise. All welcome.
