London's Folklore

Why is storytelling important? “It's the foundation of how we understand the world. When we're looking back on our own life, we make narratives about the people who we know and about ourselves and think about your life. You've always got the kind of grandparents who read out the same old stories again and again, and that's how you understand your own life. So our whole life and our whole thought is all structured around stories and a city like London is basically, you may say it's built bricks, but it's not really, it's made of millions and millions of stories.” Vanessa Woolf

Explore with Hazel from London Guided Walks and Vanessa from London Dreamtime, the curious world of London's folklore and how the opaque curtain between fact and fiction moves organically in our Podcast Episode 10.
