Letchworth Arts. Witchcraft in Herts.

Letchworth Arts. Witchcraft in Herts.

Monday, 4 July 2016 - 10:15am

Monday 4 July, 10.15am for 10.30am start at The Settlement
The first part will be a talk by Sue Scott Davison about her plans for Letchworth. Sue is the Creative Programmer for the Broadway Cinema (ready for when the cinema can also be used as a theatre), and is also in charge of the Broadway Studio (part of what was the Arts Centre). Sue was the producer of the London show, The Railway Children.
The main speaker will be Professor Owen Davies, a member of the History Department at the University of Hertfordshire, who will talk on Witchcraft in Hertfordshire. Much of his work concerns the belief in witchcraft, magic, ghosts, and popular medicine from the ancient world to the modern era. This has also led to work on global comparative studies, and inter-disciplinary research applying anthropological and biomedical knowledge to historical topics. He also has interests in landscape history, heritage, and public history.
