Treadwell's esoteric bookshop is always good money for an unusual event. Tomorrow night, writer and self-described witch doctor Stephen Grasso pops by to talk about the 'voodoo psychogeography' of London.
What does that mean? Here's how he describes the talk:
The mysteries of the boneyard and the buried river slide into focus. The lunar temple of St Pauls Cathedral opens its doors for witchcraft, and the chained giants of the Guildhall break their bonds. Our Lady of the Thames pulsates outside of time ... Senses are washed clear and duplicitous spells are undone. All cities have magic.
Riiiight. Well, if you'd like to dabble further, head to Treadwell's for a 7.30pm start. Tickets are £7. Note that the shop recently broke its own bonds and slipped deeper into Bloomsbury. You can now find the itinerant outlet at 33 Store Street. Check out their future programme for a hokerypokery of further oddball events, including several talks and walks on occult London and our own Tom Bolton describing London's lost rivers (28 September).
