Cuckfield Museum: talk on Thursday 11th October at 2.30 pm in the Council Chamber, Queen’s Hall, Cuckfield by Dr Janet Pennington on “Witches, Warlocks and Wellingtons” and The Ritual Protection of the Home.

The talk examines some of the ways people in the past protected themselves and their homes from evil. Samples of protective items will be on display and can be handled.
