S3E14 – King Bladud of Bath with Sunil Patel

King Bladud of Bath

Bath comedian Sunil Patel (BBC Asian Network) dons the mantle of Deputy Loreperson in this Covid-19 Lockdown Special. Sequestered in our separate garrets, sheds and jazz lounges, we learn the story of King Bladud. Bladud was a daredevil, a leper, an assistant pig farmer and founder of the city of Bath. Now that’s a portfolio career.

  • Who petrified the Keynsham snakes?
  • Is it possible to fly from Bath to London, Icarus-style?
  • Does Sunil Patel’s mum know he’s on TV?

Find out in Episode 14.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft. Featuring guest Loreperson, Sunil Patel.
