Monthly Meeting - Witches in history and today

Monthly Meeting - Witches in history and today

We are back after the summer break, and our first speaker meeting of the autumn is on the subject of witches!

Our speaker, Deborah Hyde, has written and lectured extensively about superstition, paranormal beliefs, mythical monsters, folklore and psychology. Her varied interests include witch-hunting and exorcisms in parts of Africa. She has always been fascinated by “dark stuff” and the macabre. For this she blames “having spent too much time with mad aunties”. She will talk about witchcraft, including child witches and witchcraft laws, in this country and elsewhere.

In her day job Deborah is a make-up effects co-ordinator in the film industry, and has contributed to many films including Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone.

Guildford & Woking Humanists

Do you think about what is right and wrong, based on reason and respect for others?

Do you find beauty, and joy in the one life we have, without the need for an afterlife?

Do you look to science instead of religion as the best way to discover and understand the world?

Do you believe people can use empathy and compassion to make the world a better place for everyone?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then why not come along to one of our events and meet a friendly group of humanists, atheists, agnostics, skeptics and free-thinkers. We hold monthly speaker events and/or discussions at the Guildford Institute (in the Assembly Room on the first floor unless otherwise stated) and regular social events - all are welcome! There's no entry charge or membership fee, but we do collect donations to cover the room hire and speaker expenses - a donation of £3 is suggested unless you're a student in which case it's free.
