The Stuff of Spells
Lecture – Julian Vayne
Curing, cursing, protecting and banishing: this is the stuff of folk magic with its long history in the Britain. The material culture — the traces left – are collected in museums. Tonight we present a talk on folk magic by Julian Vayne from the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic in Boscastle, who will bring and show some actual items from collection, and use these as a starting point to talk about the nitty-gritty of folk magic. Join us for a remarkable talk on the old spell-crafts, from charming to hexing, with a selection of specially-lent museum objects for all to look at close up.
Time: Arrive 7.15 pm for a 7.30 pm start.
