Chris Roberts

Biography

London based writer and tour guide. My interests include history and folklore, especially London's, and of the river Thames and London's bridges. I am the author of books about the latter as well as one on the history of nursery rhymes, "lost" English words and football and superstition.

Current projects include co-presenting the cult football radio show Cafe Calcio on Resonance 104.4 FM which examines the social, political and cultural aspects of the game. Previous series have featured the Football Art Masterclass, Tacticus a Latin speaking football correspondent and the links between soccer and contemporary dance. In order to keep fit I also conduct London walking tours including the acclaimed Liars' London Tours for www.londonstreettours.co.uk
