Join us for an evening of witchcraft and history as authors Moira Hodgkinson and Philip Heselton discuss their new historical fiction Operation Cone of Power.

It has long been rumoured that on the eve of August 1940, a coven of witches gathered in the New Forest to create an immense surge of magical forces to aid Britain’s fight in WWII.
In September 1939, Gerald Gardner, amateur anthropologist and collector of weaponry, began his training as an initiated witch with enthusiasm. Then war was announced and the future of Britain became uncertain, the threat of invasion from the German army loomed ever closer. Gerald put his efforts and knowledge to use in the Home Guard along with pieces from his private collection. Little did he know it would be his newly honed magical skills that gave him and his friends the power they needed to stand their ground.

Moira Hodgkinson is a Nottinghamshire based witch and author of several works of pagan fiction as well as practical witchcraft guides.

Philip Heselton is a leading historian of modern witchcraft and the author of acclaimed biographies on Gerald Gardner and Doreen Valiente.
