The Museum of British Folklore

I first came across Simon Costin's Museum of British Folklore a few years ago, when Telling the Bees played Festival at the Edge. Then, the Museum was just a beautifully decorated caravan, filled with rare objects from our islands' strange and colourful folk history. I could see that our heritage was in safe hands.

Now the Museum is looking for your help to raise the money for a permanent building to house its growing collection. Obviously, this is a subject that is close to my heart but I think such a museum would have national and international importance. It needs to happen. So check out this promo video, spread the word, and see what you can do to get this invaluable project off the ground.


  1. Excellent! Our heritage is indeed in safe hands. Thanks for sharing, I'd never heard of this before. Very worth supporting.
