Time Out #LoveLondonAwards
Vote for us!
Blimey. Our shop has made the shortlist of one of the most important London awards, chosen by customers themselves.
Voting is open for the final cut, click the link to vote HERE.
How it works
Following an intense four-week nomination stage, it’s now time for the important bit – voting. This is when the most nominated venues in each category go head to head for ultimate glory (and a sweet Love London Awards 2015 window sticker). You can vote in as many categories in as many areas as you like, but remember that you can only vote for ONE venue per category. Don’t blame us – blame democracy.
The polls close on October 31, and we’ll reveal the winners at a glitzy bash on November 16. There will be prosecco and probably some of those mini-burgers you get at such events.

Treadwell's Pick of the Week: Books & Events
"Witchcraft of Dame Darrel of York" by Charles Godfrey Leland
Rhode Island, USA: The Witches Almanac Ltd, 2011. Hardback, 361 pages. New.
Charles Godfrey Leland (1824 – 1903) is also the author of the folklore (and later Wiccan) classic, Aradia, or the Gospel of the Witches. This book, less well known, purports to be the an actual account of medieval English witchcraft. It was supposedly transcribed by the witch’s nephew after her death, in order to preserve all her lore for future generations of witches.
It give a fascinating guide to a very English, very folkloric, practice, full of detail and full of the night-time mysteries of the witch. It has been established that the work was Leland’s imaginative recreation of how he imagined witchcraft was practised. It is accurate in the sense that the fiction is underpinned by years of prodigious research. As a result, the Witchcraft of Dame Darrel is a wonderful model, for the reader developing their Craft practice today.
To be used as a guide and an inspiration, it will be embraced by today’s witch who loves the old lore of England.
