Join us on a bewitching tour of spells, sorcery and superstition in Cambridge, a home of English Witchcraft. Led by a Modern day Witch or a guide who practises Magic and Ritual, we will take you on a tour of both colleges and countryside to discover the mystical side of Cambridge - and to dispel the myth that Witches are Wicked!
Discover how the centre of Scientific research - Cambridge University - was once the place to practice magic, alchemy and Occultism. Re-think what you know about the world's most famous scientists, find out what Isaac Newton and others really studied within the ancient college walls - and how it all became the origins of Harry Potter.
See where the alleged 'Wickedest Man in the World' - the infamous Aleister Crowley - first picked up a book on 'Black Magic' and conducted his first 'magikal' ceremonies, leading him onto the path of the Occult and an extreme libertine lifestyle that inspired our top Rock musicians. Influential Visionary or Dangerous Eccentric - you decide!
Cross into the ancient water logged Fenland to discover what happened to the native witches of Cambridgeshire, their spells, traditions, local superstitions and stories. See where those poor folk who were accused on notorious witch trials of the past were tortured and 'ducked' in the City.
Finally - discover the enchanting modern side of Witchcraft, learn what today's Witches believe and practice in one of the fastest growing religions in the world. You can even try some real magic for yourself at the end of the tour...
