Talk on Witchcraft Old and New

The word "witch" has had many different meanings at different times and places and to different people: anything from a woman who tells fortunes to a vampire owl who kills infants in their cradles.

Tomorrow evening, at Secret Chiefs, Gareth Medway will be talking about the patterns in this diversity and looking at what connection, if any, there is between people who meet naked in suburban living rooms and medieval women who reputedly flew around the world on broomsticks.

Gareth is a priest of Themis and a historian of occultism.

The talk is on Wednesday 30 April and starts at 8.30pm, upstairs at the Devereux pub, 20 Devereux Court, off Essex St, London WC2. The doors open at 7.30pm. Ticket price £2. The talk is organised by Secret Chiefs, London’s longest-running pagan talks forum.
