Norwich Pagan Moot


Events

We are gearing up to running more face-to-face events - starting with walks and the Coffee Moot - details of up-coming events are below. We will still be doing on-line talks as well - the silver lining to the last two years has been the people who have joined as on-line that couldn't do so in person. We have been joined by people from distant parts of England, Wales, Canada, France and the USA! Expect interesting things later in the year too, as we will be holding our annual Boudica's Brocante in October and commemorating the centenary of the opening of Tutankamun's tomb (a significant event for both Egyptology and Western magical traditions) by Norfolk lad, Howard Carter.

If you join our Facebook group you will automatically get notifications of our virtual Moots run by Alice Kerridge-Crick. If you’re not a Facebook person, don’t worry, the links will be given here for each event. Alternatively, contact us and we can put you on our e-mail list to get the links (please copy out the e-mail addresses to avoid spam).

We are currently investigating mailing list service options. Once we have chosen one, people will be invited to sign up afresh - including those who had signed up to receive notifications from the old Moot web-site. We apologise that we have not yet been able to accommodate that list!


Our on-line events are run via Google Meet. The joining links will be posted on this page well in advance. If you are using a computer you will be able simply to click on the link we provide to join the event. However, if you are using a mobile device (phone or tablet) you will need to download the Google Meet app. in advance and either sign in using a gmail account or create an account - so do give yourself plenty of time to do so!
