S4E53 – The Great Bed of Ware

The Great Bed of Ware

This four poster bed was built for royalty, but take our word for it – it’s a lot more than king-sized. This bed is big. You might ask, how many butchers (plus partners) can you fit in it? The answers will surprise you!

James gives Alasdair the old ‘come to bed’ podcast tale. About a big bed. The biggest bed. Bigger than you’re thinking of.

Oh, and bad news: it’s haunted.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
