About The Event

Despite being one of the most influential traditions in modern paganism, Wicca's history is still not widely known.

In this class for witchcraft beginners, a longstanding Wiccan priestess takes a tour of the main milestones in the religion's background, exploring key facts from the life of Gerald Gardner, Alex Sanders and other individuals who shaped it. She also outlines how movements such as Freemasonry and the romantic poets influenced its development. By the end, participants will have a foundational understanding of Wicca's history and evolution throughout the years.

The 'Ways Into Witchcraft' series is dedicated to introducing beginners to the main pagan paths, with a particular focus on witchcraft and Wicca. The other events in the series are: Introduction to Pagan Paths (15 April), Initiatory Wicca vs Solitary Witchcraft (13 May), Introduction to Magical Ritual (17 Jun) and Witchcraft’s Big Ideas (15 July). If the event has passed and you'd like to catch up, please contact to access delayed viewing.

Rebecca Beattie has spent over two decades practising witchcraft. A Wiccan priestess of 15 years, she has a rich understanding of the history and traditions underpinning pagan practice. She also has a doctorate in Creative Writing and is a published author. Her books include Wheel of the Year: A Nurturing Guide and the  pagan toolkit for navigating major life changes, The Way Through the Woods. Website:
