Thursday 3rd May – An Evening With… Stephen Skinner and David Rankine
The Goetia of Dr Rudd and magic of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
The long awaited, revised, expanded and accurate Goetia is Stephen Skinner and David Rankine’s latest offering to magical scholarship. The Goetia contains four grimoires and this pair of eminent scholars have been able to understand practically as well as theoretically the importance of the texts they have found.
This book and others by them will of course be for sale and Stephen and David will sign them for you. If you cannot attend, we can reserve copies on your behalf to be inscribed.

Thursday 24th May – An Evening With… Nigel Pennick
East Anglian Magic including the horse whispering tradition.
East Anglia has a distinct tradition of folk-magic, The Nameless Art, that reflects the particular character of the people and the landscape. Nigel Pennick will speak on the magical and spiritual inheritance of East Anglia, land of horse-whisperers, Toadsmen and Toadswomen, cunning folk and Bonesmen, practical and useful ways of being that continue unobtrusively today. East Anglian magic is practised by those who have an inner body knowledge of the land and its sacred places, conducting magical performances within the cycle of the mystic year. The Nameless Art contains traditional secrets whose roots lie in the Heathen traditions of the ancient Anglians and Danes who lived in East Anglia and whose descendents continue to use their ancient skills and wisdom today.
Nigel Pennick is author of 49 books, participates in traditional performances in East Anglia and makes stained glass in the tradition of the Spiritual Arts & Crafts.

Thursday 14th June – An Evening With… Julia Phillips
Madeline Montalban, Mesmerising Magician.
Madeline Montalban was a friend of Aleister Crowley, a journalist and ran a school of magic. Angelic Magic was a large part of the curriculum. Since her death in the 1980s she has become a legend. This talk is designed to put the record straight before it gets too distorted.
Julia Phillips is a highly respected occultist and a through researcher. She has collated the reminiscences of friends and pupils to shape a fascinating record of a remarkable woman and her magical work.

Friday 29th June – An Evening With… Martin Faulks
Freemasonry as a path of spiritual understanding.
Martin Faulks is a young, enthusiastic and high ranking Mason. He hopes to dispel some of the common misapprehensions about the Craft. This evening primarily he wants to explain some of the esoteric heart of this interesting and all too often misunderstood path of enlightenment.
