Dawn of the Oak is a group that was started as an interface for people from different Pagan and occult paths to exchange and discuss ideas and to create a safe space for newcomers to come and find information about the London Pagan scene. Meetings are held upstairs in The Sir John Oldcastle pub, next to Farringdon Station, from 3 to 7pm, on the 3rd Sunday of every month for socialising and discussion on all aspects of Paganism, Wicca and witchcraft, Heathen and Druid beliefs and other esoteric groups. The meetings are open to all with a genuine and respectful interest in Pagan and occult matters; the atmosphere is relaxed and informal, there is no entry fee and you can be assured of a warm and friendly welcome from the regulars whatever your level of knowledge.
An associated group we run is Kith of The Tree and The Well. Formed to promote and celebrate the spiritual aspects of the old Scandinavian and North European religions, it meets upstairs at The Horseshoe Inn on the last Sunday of January, March, May, July, September and October. A talk and discussion on the history and practice, followed by a seasonal ceremony. Plenty of socialising and a friendly welcome for newcomers. Meeting from 2pm, talk starts about 3pm. The blot ceremony starts about 4pm, the door may be closed once this starts (a notice will be posted) but will be open again when it is ended (about half hour). There is a £2 fee to pay for hiring the room. There is currently no wheelchair access upstairs.
