The Nameless Arte - Aspects of Traditional Witchcraft in Britain
Sat 2 September 2017, 10:00 – 18:00 BST
This will interest anyone who would like a deeper understanding of the aspects of Traditional Witchcraft in Britain throughout the ages, and is a must for all those who practice the craft. For both cunning folk and layman alike, we have a line up of some of the best authors and speakers on this topic around today in Great Britain.
Teas and Coffees will be available all day and we advise you to bring a packed lunch. There are cafes and shops nearby, as the venue is close to the town and accessible by car, bus, rail and near the local airport for those travelling from further away. The venue has all amenities and lifts with outside gardens and a small car park and off road parking.
If you have any questions please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Nicky Mahoney Todd on facebook.
