Celebrate Imbolc with us (and Inkubus Sukkubus!)

Celebrate Imbolc with us (and Inkubus Sukkubus!)

On Saturday January 28th 2017, the Museum will be hosting a day of events to celebrate the approach of Imbolc (which is on February 1st).  You can choose to attend the whole day event for £30 or just the evening event for £20 or just the workshops for £10.  Each price includes a visit to the Museum.

Daytime events running from 10-4.30pm.  In the morning you will do one workshop and in the afternoon another workshop.  Maximum of thirty people.

Workshop 1: make a Bride’s Cross workshop with Gillian Nott.  Learn straw crafts and create a traditional protection symbol.

Workshop 2: wool workshop.  The Goddess Bride is associated with lambs so come and spin your own wool, learn or practice your knitting and maybe even made a Bride’s Eye (protection and good luck symbol made from wool).

4.30-6pm: Museum open only for people who have tickets to the event.

Evening event:

From 6pm: arrive at the venue: the National Trust Visitor’s Centre Cafe where drinks will be on sale.  As you enter pass through a giant girdle of Bride and also lay a present in the Bed of Bride (a piece of glass or shell is traditional but you can put anything you like in it – something small).

From 7.30pm: Live music by Inkubus Sukkubus.  A chance to see a great Pagan band and celebrate the birth of spring at the Museum.

  1. Sorry, this event has sold out. If you email the Museum I can add you to the reserve list in case of cancellations. We do have space on just the daytime activities (making Bride’s Crosses and the Wool Workshop) if you would be interested in that, the tickets are £10 per person. Again please email the Museum (museumwitchcraft@aol.com) for more details. Thanks.
