Join. Us... https://www.angelcomedy.co.uk/event-detail/loremen-alasdair-beckett-king-james-shakeshaft-27th-jun-the-bill-murray-london-tickets-202206272100/ James leads you by the hand to Lower Swell, surely one of the rudest regions in the Cotswolds. If you were worried season (series) 4 had become too historically accurate - worry no more! This ep…
 
The Stone of Destiny, AKA the Stone of Scone, has been stolen more times than Alasdair has had cold Scottish dinners. In this episode we uncover a daring Scottish heist and a Scotsman's unexplained demise. That's right, unable to compete with James's recent two-parter, ABK has frantically squeezed a couple of tales into a single episode. Learn how …
 
It's season four of Loremen! It's 4oremen. 4men? Either way, we're one man short of opening a profitable burger chain. And it's time for William Adams 2: The Secret of the Ooze. The first Englishman in Japan is starting to get comfortable in his new home/prison, but he is about to run into Jesuits, the East India Company and a particularly unpleasa…
 
Content warning - we say "willy" a LOT In 1600, William Adams was the first Englishman to visit Japan. Little was known about Japan at that time, apart from IN Japan where they knew pretty much all about it. In this, Part One of Adams's tale, we follow what must be one of history's most meandering, misbegotten and (probably) malodorous sea voyages.…
 
Seaton Delaval Hall was once home to Sir Francis Blake Delaval - the man who puts the "pranks" in "I am sick of this guy's terrible pranks". But, although living with Sir Francis must have been a nightmare, it doesn't compare to the gruesome tale he told of the Wallsend Witches. At the stroke of midnight, the Loreboys meet a gaggle of hags in the o…
 
The Loreboys share two legends from the other side of the extremely big pond (the Atlantic). Shakeshaft goes west to Yosemite National Park and encounters the Fresno Nightcrawlers. Meanwhile, ABK meets Rhode Island's Public Universal Friend. This episode was originally a livestream/shambles, beset by jetlag and the untimely demise of the Loremen la…
 
Alasdair brings James the "pathetic" legend of Maud's (or Maude's) Elm, a story as thrilling as it is obviously made up. You've got your heroines: tragic. Your lords: wicked. Your uncles: damnable! Plus, someone's dear old mum will be cast out into the street. And we're talking olden days streets here, so that's 80% poo. Listeners will also discove…
 
Welcome to the Loremen Guesthouse! Join us in the lounge for the bite-sized tale of Dame Creswyke: a restless spirit who has more than outstayed her welcome at one Moreton-in-Marsh hotel. We do hope you enjoy your room. A traybake breakfast is served 7-9, all our ghosts are en suite, and if you require a wake-up call, someone will yell "QUOZ!" Now …
 
James brings Alasdair a piece of Norfolklore... It's the story of St Walstan, a monk who was mates with a pair of oxen who had magic wee wee. Can you come down with lockdown fever outside of a lockdown? Have Alasdair and James drunk from St Walstan's well? Are you sure that's water?! This episode was livestreamed, so check out youtube.com/loremenpo…
 
Happy St Patrick's Day! To celebrate, we tell the monster-packed tale of Ireland's rival patron, St Colmcille (aka St Columba). Joining us is the frankly hilarious Seán Burke, an actual Irish comedian, who is remarkably forgiving about the Lorebois Irish-ish accents. Pronunciation fans will be overjoyed to learn we say "rhododendron" no less than 4…
 
The Loremen are joined by supernatural pod king* Danny Robins! Danny is the voice behind Haunted, The Battersea Poltergeist and Uncanny, as well as being an award-winning playwright. And he brings James and Alasdair a little-known North-Eastern legend: The Cauld Lad of Hylton. Was the Cauld Lad a ghost? A sprite? A murder victim? Or just an annoyin…
 
Since the dawn of time, humanity has dreamed of one thing: making a little robot head that talks in a funny voice. Alasdair and James chart the history of that dream, from Friar Bacon's diabolical brazen head to Professor Faber's ill-fated "Euphonia". With more body-horror than you would normally expect in an audio-based medium, it's the story of s…
