Witchfest 2010

Yesterday myself and a couple of good friends travelled to Witchfest. This is an annual event organised by The Children of Artemis, a group of like minded people that I am a member of.

The day was a host of talks, workshops, stalls and live music all in one place. Talks and workshops by Tylluan Penry, James Bennett, Martin Wyse, Damh the Bard, Tam Campbell, Prof. Ronald Hutton and Kate West to name but a few!

There were so many talks and workshops to choose from it was difficult to work out which ones to go to.

The first talk we attended was 'Shamanism & the Eight Fold Path of Wicca by James Bennett. It was very interesting and although we didn't agree with all his thoughts, it was a good talk.

Then on to Witches Panel Question Time - Tam Campbell, Kate West, Martin Wyse, Damh the Bard and Tylluan Penry took the stage and answers questions from the audience. It was very informatative and entertaining!

Next, on to a lecture by Prof. Ronald Hutton on the history of the fae. Extremely interesting and thought provoking with some of his personal experiences thrown in for good measure.

The last talk we attended was from Damh the Bard on Ogham and Druidic Tree Magic, so well attended that the room was full to bursting! Damh was, as always very entertaining and gave a very thought provoking talk about ogham, certainly gave me a different way of learning it.

A very good day, with added cake, shopping and food of course!

Lots of live music in the evening - Damh the Bard, The Dolmen and Inkubbus Sukkubus among the line up.
