Schedule 2018‎ > ‎

Saturday 17th February

As with 2017, our lectures are evenly spaced to allow for a leg stretch and to confer with your fellow attendees, and we will be running them parallel to our workshops. The Occult Market will be open to attendees and the public throughout the day, and our cafe will again be provided by the wonderful Cognitive Coffee Company.

On Saturday morning, registration begins in the Town Hall cafe from 9.00am, and there will be our customary free tea or coffee (1 per person!) until the Main Hall opens at 10.00am for our first speaker, Janet Farrar, and our first workshop upstairs in the Council Chamber by James North. At 11.30am our second speaker will be Marian Green, while Soror Brigantia, Section Head for the IOT in the British Isles, runs a workshop upstairs with the Kite. This takes us up to lunch from 1.00pm to 2.00pm.

After lunch, Phil Hine will present on early Tantra in the Main Hall, while Damh the Bard offers a workshop in the Council Chamber. At 3.30pm our next lecture will be from Mogg Morgan, while Caroline Wise is our last workshop on Florence Farr and the Book of the Dead, taking us to our final lecture in the Main Hall at 5.00pm by Damh the Bard.

The day closes with an open ritual provided by the very wonderful LifeRites at 6.00pm in the Main Hall, and we'll then take a short break until the evening party at 8.00pm, at a nearby location The Avalon Club. I'm sure we'll all have an early night, ready for Sunday's packed schedule.
