It was the Night before Halloween.. Ghosts & Ghouls were stirring and not an undead soul was resting! Keeping to our tradition.. we are holding our pre-Halloween walk along south bank side of river Thames in central London. This time on wednesday 30th October!
This is a `fun’ event with an undertone of seasonal magic. So Gather ..with costumes & lanterns by Globe Theatre (near Millennium Bridge, south bank).. After a few sips of ginger wine via our drinking horns and tankards..we’ll amble along the path… We’ll stop near Oxo tower (green area) for our annual `Thames: River of Souls Ceremony’ to honour the Spirit of Thames & Ancestors. Then continue walking to Royal Festival Hall..
Bring snacks & drinks to share.
Bring pumpkins. Lanterns (no naked flames please for safety).
Bring battery operated lights.. costumes.. masks etc.
Our ceremonies are open to everyone, of all paths and religions.
Stay as long as you like.. and leave when you want to.
Fees: Suggested Donations £3 welcome to the `Ferryman’ (for your underworld journey)!
Meeting point/ time:
Please get to outside steps of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre / Bankside pier by 7.30pm. We’ll get organised and begin walk. We hope the 1000m walk will only take us about 1 hour at an extremely leisurely procession/ festive walking speed. 🙂
Cloths/what to bring: -Wear warm/ waterproof comfortable cloths… Please check weather for London for friday evening and dress appropriate. Wear good footwear..as standing/ walking for longer duration can get hard on the feet.
Food/drinks: -Please bring small picnic-style food and drinks to share.
-Bring things for self.. and if feeling generous, something to share with others..
Safety notes: Everyone is asked to take extra care with their own personal safety as we’ll be in a busy public place. Keep valuables with you at all times.. No swords…no athames..or other `real’ weapons – or anything that might alarm the general public /police. We play safe and nice.. And you are responsible for your own good behaviour and health & safety!!
