Spooky goings-on at The Bell pub in Spitalfields this week. The London Fortean Society will convene in the pub's upstairs room for three short talks about the weird and fantastical in London. Mark Pilkington of Strange Attractor Press explores Fortean Hampstead and Highgate. Geraldine Beskin of Atlantis Bookshop heads south of the river to describe the ghosts of Peckham. And John Rimmer goes in search of the Brentford Griffin. As always, the meeting is open to everyone, and takes an open-minded view of the paranormal.
Fortean London is on 26 January upstairs at The Bell, Middlesex Street, from 7.30pm. £3/£2. Image of a London griffin by Victor Grigas under Creative Commons.
