Transport - To travel as a group we need to know numbers in advance. The price for this part of the day is separate from the event at Preston Manor, and will cost £5 each to cover transport. As time is short, the quickest easiest way to do this is to send us the £5 via our donation page. Make sure you leave your contact details. Alternatively, you may meet us at Tyson Place at 10:30 am and make your own way to the main event at Preston Manor to arrive by 11:15 am.
The Day at Preston Manor - there will be readings of Doreen’s original talks on Witchcraft, her poetry and recitals of original poetry by Pagans who have contributed to our Facebook Group, underscoring our desire to celebrate Doreen’s legacy of Pagan Poetry.
The day will end with a dedication/ritual to remember Doreen and to say thank you for her work. Among the readers, we hope to feature actress Peta Taylor. Peta will play Doreen in “Doreen - an English Witch", a production which opens in Brighton November 22- 27th, to coincide with Witchfest; we will let you know more once the production has more to tell us!
