Crossbones Vigil

Friday 23rd March 2018

gather 6.45 for 7pm at the red gates in Redcross Way, London SE1 (Borough or London Bridge)

Our Vigil for the Outcast, dead and alive, has been held on the 23rd of every month since June 2004.

We welcome all faiths and none, sex-workers, office-workers, cis, LGBTQ+ and those who don’t identify themselves by their sexuality, outcasts and outsiders of all races, colours and creeds.

We come to honour the outcast, dead and alive, to renew the shrine at the red gates with ribbons and magical totems, and to reclaim the secret history of Crossbones as revealed by The Goose to John Crow in The Southwark Mysteries.

At this month’s Vigil we traditionally celebrate the Spring Equinox and the opportunity to rebalance our lives. John Crow will be doing the honours, working with Jennifer and anyone else who feels able to step forward and help hold the space.

Please bring ribbons or other objects to tie to the gates, poems, songs and personal testimonies to share.

Free. Donations welcome.
