Tuesday 6 August 7pm

39a Marchmonth Street, London, WC1N 1AP

"The naïve and the pedantic and the bizarre and the grotesque and the sincere and the insincere, the profound and the puerile."
The Book of the Damned

Beginning at 7pm outside 39A Marchmont Street, Fort’s home in London, with a reading and toast (ale and cheese optional).

Followed by a drink in his honour at the Marquis Cornwallis on Marchmont Street, a "Bloomsbury pub of grandiose proportions".


All forteans and friends welcome.

"I am a collector of notes upon subjects that have diversity—such as deviations from concentricity in the lunar crater Copernicus, and a sudden appearance of purple Englishmen—stationary meteor-radiants, and a reported growth of hair on the bald head of a mummy—and "Did the girl swallow the octopus?"

Sounds good. Wish I could make it.

Spare a thought for the rather excellent, nearby, Lord John Russell.

Not that I'm suggesting a pub-crawl, or anything. Smile

Sorry I'll miss it. I am planning to visit his grave that day.

Sadly I was away for this one. I got a couple of enthusiastic phone calls from the pub. About 11 people came along
