The programme

The amazing Inkubus Sukkubus will be our evening entertainment. We expect loads of old favourites from their extensive discography, plus one or two from their new album!

We will delve into the world of Folk Horror Revival with Andy Paciorek and Darren Charles, our keynote speakers. They will present a never-been-heard-before talk on the history and folklore of witchcraft, faeries, angels, daemons, an ghosts in relation to folk horror revival cinema and television. It's absolutely fantastic we can bring them to Scotland and we are sure everyone will want to hear what they have to say on this amazing topic.

Rich Blackett - Chair of Asatru UK and part of Folk Horror Revival - will give an amazing insight into werewolves, wolf cults and Heathen warriors. A feast of magic and folklore.

The magnificently open Cat Treadwell will talk about being a modern Druid as well as being a Pagan and living with depression. A really insightful discussion to be had!

We'll also explore Aleister Crowley and the Elixir of Life as Jean Fowler, Pagan Celebrant and Edinburgh University Honorary Chaplain, presents her research on the topic.

Spin some magick with Dr Jennifer Lauxman McCorkell, expert in wool and metalwork, with two unique workshops - hand spinning and weaving - both limited numbers!

An exploration of everyday Enochian magic is the focus of a much anticipated workshop by Paul Sykes. Paul will reveal the work of John Dee and Edward Kelly as they unveiled the angelic language and made contact with the Angelic realm.

Having explored Voodoo, western mysticism and traditional witchcraft, to name but a few, Avi Lago will take us through a workshop on Espiritismo: working with the ancestors.

Hear about the King of the Scots, King Arthur, with an thrilling talk by Glaswegian historian Hugh MacArthur, who has spent many years studying the roots of the legendary king.

If you've ever wanted to talk with two experienced Wiccans, here is your chance. Fee and Jon will facilitate this fascinating open discussion group.

Members of Midlothian AVoD Lodge will lead everyone in a Thelemic ritual for this year's closing ritual; a first for the SPF conference and one we hope everyone enjoys experiencing.

From inspring talks, interactive workshops, open discussions and spectacular evening entertainment, we've got a brilliant day out in the heart of Edinburgh.
