Devon & Cornwall Pagan Federation Conference Yesterday

A great day was had by all at the Devon & Cornwall Pagan Federation conference at Kilkhampton near Bude yesterday. There were some excellent speakers in attendance. Philip Carr-Gomm kicked off proceedings with a talk on druidry & oracles; Val Thomas spoke on the art of the kitchen witch; Julian Vayne did a fab job speaking on Aleister Crowley (filling in at the last minute for Dr Roland Rotheram who was sadly unable to attend - we wish him a speedy recovery); and the grande finale was a Parkinson-esque interview of the wonderful Maxine Sanders undertaken by the effervescent Cassandra Latham.
The amazing Wolf's Head & Vixen Border Morris side had a fab fun time energising the room with their unique brand of hot Morris action. (Apparently they were seen later in the evening entertaining the manager & customers of Morrisons in Bude in full regalia.)
The Museum & The Occult Art Company had a stall which was well supported. The highlight of the evening was Damh the Bard entertaining the crowd with his music - I believe there was much boogeying going on (if anyone has any incriminating photos please send them in). You can find Damh on Youtube.
We've had a special opening today for everyone who attended the PF do. It's great to get some energy into the place before we officially open on March 21st. It's freezing outside & we're battening down the hatches for what may be a very elemental night.
