Don’t listen with Mother: The Museum of Witchcraft & Magic in Cornwall present a Banned Book at Bedtime – nightly webcasts from the MWM Library. From the Grimoire to the Bodice Ripper; discover ancient magical texts subverted as evidence in witch trials, unpublished transcriptions of conversations with spirits, alchemic formulae, works of occult philosophy and novels so racy and depraved they were banned from sale on the Paris Metro! With special guest Dr Thomas Waters, whose book Cursed Britain is published by Yale University Press.

The webcast streaming is free, at 10pm every evening 22 – 28 September. The webcast is part of the MWM Equinox Colloquium in Boscastle, Cornwall from 20 – 22 September.

Tickets for the equinox event are £25 for the weekend and can be booked here https://museumofwitchcraftandmagic.co.uk/event/equinox/
