One Eye Grey is a twenty  first century penny dreadful packed with scary London stories.

This summer's programme of events includes a couple more Chat and song musical history walks. Think of them as a series of short concerts. Think of them as a walking tour. Think of them as really top days out with ace tunes and chatter from Chris Roberts and Nigel Hoyle. At every stop there are short tales about the area and also a song about the location. Walks last about two hours. 

Wapping (rerun!) : Sunday Aug 21st Cable Street to Wapping waterfront. Start 3PM Library Place Cable Street (near mural). Shadewell or Tower Bridge tube.

Terrible Tides and deathly docks:
Political riots, staked murderers, escaped tigers, ghostly polar bears and the dreaded witch of Wapping all feature in this two hour amble round E1. There are also well hung pirates, hanging judges and other Thameside shocks around the old docks and back streets of one of London’s spikier boroughs.

Sounds of the suburb: A musical Bloomsbury Walking Tour - Meet St Pancras Church. (Dukes Street entrance) 1PM Saturday 27th August . Euston tube or rail. 

A tour of London's first suburb featuring strange ghosts, substance abuse, literary greats and violent street disorder. We cannot of course guareentee the street disorder or indeed ghosts actually appearing but the songs and stories about them will. We shall naturally mention Bloomsbury’s many famous residents as well as a culinary history that sees top national restaurant chains being set up a few yards from each other in the south of the area.
