There are still just a few tickets remaining for the Pagan Federation 45th Anniversary Celebration on May 1 in Brighton, at the same venue as the Folklore, Magic and Mysteries: Modern Witchcraft and Folk Culture in Britain exhibition.
The event starts at noon and tickets cost £13.85 for PF members and £17.02 for non-members. You must order a ticket in advance and you can get them via Eventbrite. Here are the details from the website:
The inaugural meeting of members of the Pagan Front, which later became the Pagan Federation, took place on 1st May 1971 in Chiswick, and was chaired by Doreen Valiente, who wrote a short ritual for the occasion. It therefore seems very appropriate to celebrate our 45th anniversary at Preston Manor, where material from the Doreen Valiente Collection is on display as part of their exhibition for the summer season:The Folklore, Magic and Mysteries: Modern Witchcraft and Folk Culture in Britain exhibition of artefacts, manuscripts and documents from the Doreen Valiente Foundation runs until 30 September. It is at Preston Manor, Preston Drove, Brighton BN1 6SD, which is normally open Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5pm; Sunday 2-5pm. Details: http://brightonmuseums.org.uk/prestonmanor/
Folklore, Magic and Mysteries: Modern Witchcraft and Folk Culture in Britain
The theme will be how we can learn from Doreen's approach and life as we work for the future of the Pagan Federation. Current plans are for Rebecca Beattie to talk about literary Pagans, Richard Levy to talk about Doreen's approach to making witchcraft more widely accessible, and Julie Belham-Payne to share some personal reminiscences.
The event will include a tour of the exhibition, possibly in several groups depending on numbers. During the event we will have exclusive use of Preston Manor. This event is open to all those 16 years old or over.
