BEHIND THE VEIL
A torchlit cemetery walk and magical tales by candlelight with Bernadette Russell and London Dreamtime
on Saturday 7th October at 7:30 pm

Join us on a candlelit walk and discover the secrets and stories hiding amongst the tombs of Kensal Rise Cemetery. Beyond the dates and names, beyond the bare facts and cold earth, beyond the veil, lies the eerie and fantastical carnival of life, death, beauty, and longing. We will share stories and songs of broken hearts and broken promises, of the dead who will not lie quietly sleeping, of creatures who look like us but are not like us, whose hearts are still whilst their eyes are quick, of ghosts and spectres, of darkness and light, of the sombre magic of autumn and the grave, as we cast our spells of story and song to protect us from the night.

A collaboration between Bernadette Russell (“White Rabbit”) a storyteller interested in nature, magic and 21st century fairytales,
Vanessa Woolf (“London Dreamtime”) an explorer of London's secret stories and enchanted pathways and George Hoyle (“Cunning Folk”) who makes music rooted in folk traditions and ritual landscape.
