Food for Thought – Magical Protection of Buildings:


In our comfortable, high-tech world, it’s hard to comprehend the fears and superstitions of people in past centuries. The belief that witches, goblins and demons were hell-bent on destroying their buildings and crops made people resort to ever more bizarre ways to protect themselves. This talk by Jane Gosling will look at some of the strange practices of the day.

The Guildhall has high thresholds but there is a ramp to ensure access to the Main Hall.


December 3rd – 10.30-12.30.

Tickets are £20 and include a light lunch. Tickets must be prebooked at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/food-for-thought-magical-protection-of-buildings-tickets-71062472769 or by calling 03442 491895
