Founded by Gloucestershire-based Inkubus Sukkubus, the Tales of Witchcraft & Wonder events have celebrated the folklore and dark folk tales of Great Britain, often more specifically Gloucestershire and the West Country, since 2016.
The first event was held at Gloucester’s historic Blackfriars Priory in September of that year, and raised £2,284 for Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust. This year’s event is a two-day affair – on Saturday, September 24th & Sunday, September 25th – to be held at and to raise funds to help preserve the Tudor buildings of The Folk of Gloucester on the city’s historic Westgate Street.
Daytime events are FREE and run from 10am-5pm on Saturday, September 24th; and 12 noon-4pm on Sunday, September 25th.
Throughout the buildings will be a series of stalls to pick up witchy supplies, books, gifts and all manner of curiosities. The Secret Garden Café will be serving hot and cold drinks and light refreshments, while the courtyard bar will keep you supplied with local ales and ciders.
