NOW BOOKING FOR NEXT WEEK: "Remembering Gerald Gardner - a day of talks at Preston Manor, Saturday 18th June, 10:30am, Brighton."
Celebrate Gerald Gardner's 132nd birthday next week. Ashley Mortimer, Philip Carr Gomm and Tam Campbell will be at Preston Manor to discuss Gardner's place in modern pagan history, including a reading of his historic 1955 talk, believed to be the first legal public talk about witchcraft since the repeal of the 1735 witchcraft act.
Gardner's original Book of Shadows will be on display with artefacts from the Doreen Valiente collection. Tickets are included in the price of entry to Preston Manor, although limited spaces are available for each talk.
