Imbolc, the festival of the first stirrings of spring, is on February 1, with events taking place over the next couple of weeks. Here's a mixture of both online and in-person ways to celebrate the festival plus other magical talks, workshops and entertainment. I generally list things in the UK, especially in or near London, but some are outside that time zone. If you know an online or London-based event you want included, please email email@example.com

Notes: I am not responsible for the content of these events. I don't always know about changes or cancellations to events I don't run - tbc means to be confirmed. Contact event organisers directly if you have questions. I generally list things in the UK, especially in or near London, but some are outside that time zone. Where a practitioner is offering information about magical wellbeing and healing, this is *not* medical advice.
