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.
