Newham Folk Archive: Oral History, Folk Law, Truth and Myth

Saturday 3 July, 2pm

The traditional beliefs, customs and stories of a community are passed through the generations by word of mouth. During this difficult time when people have been unable to come together, will this culture survive or will these stories and customs be lost?  

Newham Folk Archive takes to the streets to trace the steps of Newham’s cultural heritage. The sun rises on the start of summer but what stories, music, costume and dance will we find? 

How to Attend

From the start date you can watch the video premiere here or on YouTubeFacebook or Instagram.
