Thank you for the list and previous recommendations.
I understand, that The Dark Muse pis pretty much the same Moot with no name is that correct?

Also you've listed events till Friday, excluding Sat. and Sun.Does it mean, that there are no events on those dates?

Merlin - Yes, I believe The Dark Muse is the title of the lecture this week at The Moot with No Name. I couldn't find any weekend pagan events in London for this Saturday or Sunday in London - if anyone else knows of any, feel free to leave a comment.
