An April ‘Hello’ from the Hosts!

letter from the #FolkloreThursday hosts2

As this goes live, the #FolkloreThursday website has been up and running for a whole month! In that time we’ve had some fantastic posts and great feedback from contributors and readers alike, and we’re happy to say that we have another great month of content ahead for you.


Over April, look out for posts on Polish textiles, the retelling of an old favourite tale, and hearing just what inspires thework of the artist behind the History Press Folklore series. Why does Helston Museum have so many dragons? Who exactly is the Matlock Hare? And just why did people conceal objects in their walls? Check our weekly updates to find out – new posts every Thursday!


This month has been an exciting one indeed, as #FolkloreThursday has been in the media on not one, but two occasions! It has been wonderful to be able to spread the word about the project and also to get the word out there about folklore: a huge thank you to The Independent and the team at BBC Trending for making that possible. Read the Independent article, or watch the BBC video, by clicking on the links below!











One last thing: If you haven’t already, sign up to our newsletter for this month’s offers and giveaway draw, with the chance to win a copy of Paul Watson’s superb book Myth and Masks.


A huge thank you to everyone who has supported #FolkloreThursday so far, we look forward to bringing you many more months of fabulous folklore!


The #FolkloreThursday Team
