Witchtrials in London: A Walpurgis Night Special

We're going to celebrate Walpurgis Night - six month's exactly to Halloween - with a special evening of talks by experts on Witchcraft History in London!

Witch Trials: London was once Britain's most witch haunted place, with more witches being burned and tortured than in any other part of the country. Most records have been destroyed by fire – the Great Fire of London and the firestorms of the Blitz – but some survive.

Join us on Walpurgisnacht, the night that witches mark as the beginning of Spring. The night when Faust summoned the demon Mephistophiles and sold his soul. Six months until All Hallows. Six months until the rising of the dead.

Come to Clerkenwell Green, near London's Smithfields, where witches would meet their final, fiery, deaths; to a tavern in the shadow of Sessions House where they were once held for trial. Hear about witches, possession, demonic pacts and magical books. We'll even be interviewing one of London's real witches to talk about the modern day experience of Pagan life.

    I really wanted to come along this evening since the topic fuels my love of history and curiosity for the paranormal. Unfortunately though I've had to work late so can't make it. Will try to make any similarly-themed event in the future. Hope you all have a very enjoyable and informative evening :)

    How easy is it to bring another person who isn't on Meetup and get their £5 in?

    1 · April 29, 2013

    • Jon K.

      Dark Morte - if you click on your RSVP you'll find the option to include guests, that'll allow you to pay via paypal.

      I don't want to start accepting money on the door for Haunts and Horrors events at the moment because David is away for couple of weeks and I want to avoid holding onto money while he's away.
