Witchcraft talk in Hunstanton

Have your say

Witch, Wicca, Wise woman – A Short History of Witchcraft, is the title of an illustrated talk to be given by Maureen James in Hunstanton town hall, tomorrow, Wednesday January 20, at 7.30pm.

This promises to be a very interesting presentation, outlining the changing attitude towards people who were called ‘witches’, from the medieval acceptance of their role as healers, or wise women, through their persecution by Matthew Hopkins to the foundation of modern Wicca.

The talk, hosted by Hunstanton and District Civic Society also briefly considers the role of superstition and the place of the older woman in England throughout the ages.

Admission is £1 for members, £3 for non-members, and includes light refreshments.
