Folkloric Customs in the Time of Covid-19 – Dr David Clarke and Andrew Robinson

Dr David Clarke and Andrew Robinson explore the new folkloric customs and traditions that have emerged nationally and in the Sheffield / Peak District area as an outcome of the COVID-19 lockdown.

Brought to you in association with Off the Shelf Festival of Words.

About the project

An exploration of the new folkloric customs and traditions that have emerged nationally and in the Sheffield/Peak District area as an outcome of the COVID-19 lockdown.  Whilst customs such as the Castleton Garland were cancelled, new rituals emerged such as VE Day and the weekly #ClapForCarers.  Rainbow artwork decorated windows and NHS scarecrows were created in Stannington, Woodseats and Bamford. David and Andrew are founding members of the Centre for Contemporary Legend research group at Sheffield Hallam University.
