Midnight Sex Talk – Cross Bones Graveyard

We said we’d go back, and we did. Midnight Sex Talk returned to Cross Bones on Monday night for a proper celebration of the outcast dead, with much singing, drinking and beating of drums. We then processed from the Ship, in Borough Road, (said to be the most haunted pub in the area) to the site in Red Cross Way.

As anyone might have expected, the dark side of Old Southwark slipped out through the cracks when some of the local feral children appeared, (including a few who were old enough to know better), threw fireworks at our 60-strong party and then punched somebody on the nose. Such is Halloween…

The most moving part of the ceremony was when we read out the names of those buried there, and then hung tributes on the gate.

In the studio we’ve got Mistress of Ceremonies Jahnet Delight, and founding visionary John Constable, to tell us all about this neglected historical site.

Midnight Sex Talk is broadcast on alternate Sunday nights, from 11.30pm-12.30am, on Resonance 104.4 FM. More info about us
