Saturday 16 July: Dorian  Valiente. Folklore, Magic & Mysteries: Modern Witchcraft & Folk Culture in Britain

I have never been to Preston Manor before so this was the perfect excuse (also known as one of Britain’s spookiest historic houses). One room had a little exhibition of artefacts and documents from the personal collection of local witch and mother of modern witchcraft:Doreen Valiente. Not very much on show but great to see Gerald Gardner’s original handwritten ‘Book of Shadows’ and lots of lovely little artefacts. They are also doing various events relating to the exhibition, sadly only realised on the day that there was a ritual later in the afternoon but we had already made some plans. This is the first exhibition, the second, Where Witchcraft Lives, will run for 49 days from late July in the Old Courthouse in Church Street
