Cross Bones Vigil – Halloween Portal

Monday 23rd October
gather 6.45 for 7pm at the Red Gates, Redcross Way, London SE1 1TA

The 161st consecutive vigil held on the 23rd of every month since June 2004. We come here to renew the shrine at Crossbones, the burial ground for Winchester Geese and paupers, to remember the Outcast, Dead AND Alive, and to reclaim the Secret History of The Goose and John Crow. We begin on the stroke of 7.

On the 23rd October Vigil, we also mark the portal to Hallowe’en, honouring the Crossbones dead and our own lost loved ones. We’ll perform some of the rites created for the now legendary Halloween of Crossbones, including the reading of the names of the dead.

You may like to write and bring your own ribbon with the name, date and a few words to remember someone, and other mementos to renew the shrine. Come prepared to co-create!

FREE! Donations to help cover the costs of the vigil are much appreciated.
