Conference on Ritual Magic – weekend May 12th-13th

Conference on Ritual Magic – weekend May 12th-13th

Every year, the Museum changes its exhibition space to explore an aspect of witchcraft and magic in more detail.  As the exhibition space is limited and the topics we explore so large, we also hold a conference to augment and enhance the exhibition.  On Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th of May, the Museum will be holding its third annual exhibition conference.  The theme is Ritual Magic to link up with our 2018 exhibition “Dew of Heaven: Objects of Ritual Magic” (running until October 31st 2018 for more details see:
