Time Out says

Are you a fan of ‘The Wicker Man’ and ‘A Field in England’? Then you need to get yourself to ‘Ritual Britain’, an exceedingly creepy exhibition at The Crypt Gallery inside the dusty bowels of St Pancras New Church. The show is a collaboration between artist Ben Edge and the Museum of British Folklore

Enter The Crypt to find paintings by Ben Edge which explore contemporary British folk customs, such as the annual Druid ceremony in central London. Edge’s documentary film about the process of researching these customs ‘Frontline Folklore’ is also on display alongside terrifying objects from the Museum of British Folklore collection. Comedian Stewart Lee loved it so much he’s visited twice already. And if Lee approves, so do we.
