Friends Weekend

Busy with preparations for the Friends weekend. We're heavily booked this year so hoping we can fit everyone in. Meeting in the Welly bar Friday evening fro drinks before Saturday's full day of talks. We'll also have tarot readings Saturday evening courtesy of Eileen Blacklock. Remember this is a Friends of the Museum event - non Friends are welcome but will need to join on the day. It's cold here but no snow at the moment. See you soon maybe.

Thanks to Merlyn and the organisers of Witchfest - we had a great day at the event promoting Friends of The Museum of Witchcraft and selling products to raise money for the museum. We met some great people there as well! Graham's new stand design was a hit especially when I was trying to put it up and take it down. Great amusement for anyone watching! The main raffle prize on the day was a private tour of the museum for one person plus 12 of their friends. The lucky winners will have Graham King take them behind the scenes to see the archives and learn the stories behind some of the artifacts. This prize is going to be offered at some events next year to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the museum (50yrs in Boscastle).

Occult Art back to business

Apologies to anyone who has been trying to order on The Occult Art Company website. I've just updated the site and we've had a problem in one part of it - ie it's been telling customers we're not shipping to their area. This problem has been rectified so you should be OK to order as normal. Postage costs are included in the prices on the site so it may appear that prices have increased but this is not the case - extra postage & packaging costs will not be added at the checkout. International buyers are asked to email us for international postage rates. We hope to have this step removed soon but in the meantime, just give me an email & I'll get back to you asap.

Closed for 2010

Well another year of hot museum action is over as we shut the doors until April 2011. We're going to  be having a break over the Yule season and then back to spruce up the museum and get ready for the 50th Anniversary of the museum opening in Boscastle and the 60th Anniversary since the museum first opened its doors on the Isle of Man in 1951. See you next year!!
