Cross Bones Vigil – Goose Night – Crow’s Swan Song

Saturday 23rd November 2019

gather 6.45 for 7pm Vigil in the street by the shrine in Redcross Way, London SE1. Nearest tubes: Borough or London Bridge  (Borough High St. exit)

On 23rd November 1996, in visions and verses, The Goose revealed to John Crow the Secret History of Cross Bones.

Saturday 23rd November 2019 is the 23rd anniversary of this “Goose Night”, which inspired ‘The Southwark Mysteries’ and the magical works at Cross Bones Graveyard, The Halloween of Cross Bones and the Vigils held on the 23rd of every month since June 2004.

Along with our time-honoured ritual observances, John Crow will seal 23 years of active service with a performance of ‘The Book of The Goose’, assisted by Goose Rhapsodes Jennifer and Ross.

Black Swan Border Morris will dance, and a special guest will sing. Please note that at this Vigil there will be no public offerings.

This will be the 186th consecutive monthly Vigil and the last one to be personally conducted by John Crow. After this, the Vigils will continue, hosted by the Magical Collective with individual members taking on ‘The John Crow’ role.

Free! Donations welcome.
