About this event

The Black Magic of John Aubrey

A talk by Tony McAleavy - 11:00am to 12:30pm

John Aubrey (1626- 1697) came from Kington St Michael near Malmesbury and wrote pioneering works of biography, archaeology, geology and local history. Aubrey also had a dark secret. He was a wizard who used black magic to summon demons and carry out a sinister form of witchcraft.

Malmesbury & 20th Century Aviation

A Talk by Charles Vernon - 4:30pm to 6:00pm

The story of proposals for the town's own airfield and those built nearby. How the danger of air raids led to the black out in both World Wars and the extent of local bomb damage. The exploits of some aviators who came from the town and the tragedy of local aircraft accidents.
