If your in the Wearside area, do go along to this fabulous-looking event on folklore of the region, particularly that of witches and wizards. It’s on Tuesday, 4 October, so not much time left to book–I apologise for the late posting.
Washington Old Hall, 6.30 – 8pm
Booking required. A talk by Colin Younger and Alison Younger, Senior Lecturers, University of Sunderland. Folklore is the traditional, unofficial, part of culture. It encompasses all knowledge, understandings, values, attitudes, assumptions, feelings and beliefs, transmitted in traditional forms by word of mouth or by customary examples. Our purpose is to examine historical cases of witches in Wearside, from the Cauld Lad of Hylton to the Witches of Southwick.
