Nene Valley Folklore at the Key Theatre, Peterborough

This evening I spoke at Peterborough’s Key Theatre on the subject of ‘Nene Valley Folklore’ at an event organised by the 900 Voices of the Nene project, which aims to bring together stories, images, music, poems and films that relate to the River Nene. My own contribution was to speak about the folklore associated with the river, using examples drawn from my book Peterborough Folklore, the first study of the folklore of the region around Peterborough. After my talk I was interviewed about the subject for an audio archive, and the event concluded with an opportunity for members of the audience to share their own stories about the Nene.
