Tales of Witchcraft and Wonders: Ghosts, Handfasting and Oubliettes [Jul. 4th, 2017|06:18 pm]
Friday & Saturday 23-24 June: Tales of Witchcraft and Wonders: Ghosts, Handfasting and Oubliettes

On Friday afternoon i took a coach to Gloucester , collected by Tony and Candia and later made our way to the castle.

What a wonderful weekend in St Briavels Castle organised by Inkubus Sukkubus in the Forest of Dean.
On Friday we learned about all the ghostly tales from the castle with a talk by author and historian Ross Andrews before attempting some Ouija board and stool tipping. I loved the way each room I walked in that night had people looking for ghosts or drinking mead.

On Saturday Candia and Tony conducted a lovely handfasting ceremony and afterwards Candia and I jumped the broom (with tony approval ;) ) so I think this will remain one of my highlight for a very long time. I went to see the oubliette in one of the room, wander around the grounds, graveyard and the pub.
Very pretty around there especially love that carve chair and what a view over the valley.
