The Sea In Legend & Tradition The fourth Legendary Weekend of the Folklore Society
- 5th — 6th September 2009
- Time &amp; Tide, the maritime museum at Great Yarmouth in Norfolk
This two-day conference at the Time & Tide, the maritime museum at Great Yarmouth in Norfolk, will be held on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th September 2009 as the fourth Legendary Weekend of the Folklore Society.
We’d like to hear from anyone who can attend and present a paper – folklorists, performers, historians, singers and cultural or local historians. Come and celebrate mermaids, scrimshaw, ghost ships, shanties, shape-shifting seals, omens, lost lands and lucky beach-combings. Presentations, which should be 20 minutes long, can take the form of talks, performances, or DVD. There will be a limited number of opportunities for art installations. The main event will take place on Saturday with additional material and site visits on Sunday.
