Hello, and welcome to the Norwich Pagan Moot website.
Moots exist all over the UK to provide social and educational gatherings for Pagans and people following similar spiritual paths.
Originally, the moot was a monthly meeting at a Norwich pub so that Pagans, many of whom may have felt isolation at treading a lonely path,
could meet for a drink and a chat.
New Season: New Look Moot
For Jill and Graeme, with Thanks
Norwich Moot has been serving the Pagan community for at least three decades, and during that time, it has had many guardians. Jill and Graeme are amongst those who have worked hard for the moot over the years, arranging talks and rituals, making sure that the pub and coffee moots go ahead each month, as well as welcoming newcomers. They have now stepped down from the committee. We would like to express our appreciation for their efforts and thank them for all they have done.
Times are changing and the Moot is changing with them. From March, as the Growing Season gets into full swing, we will be moving things in new direction, with lots of extra ideas and activities.
The pub moot, on the first Wednesday of each month, at the Coach and Horses, Bethel Street, will continue as usual, as will the rapidly-growing coffee moot at the Forum on the fourth Saturday of each month. There will also be a talk, workshop or walk on third Sundays.
However, we hope to introduce a lot more activities, including more open rituals (following the popularity of Twelfth Night), more interactive events, a book group every other month and a pop-up museum of magical items.
Co-operation with Norwich Pagan Sphere
The Moot will now be working in co-operation with Norwich Pagan Sphere, which has over 20 years’ experience of running events and training courses, and owns the Ickeny Collection of magical items (East Anglian Museum of Magic and Mythology).
Most Pagans appreciate a shopping opportunity and there are many talented craftspeople out there. So, we will be giving people who make their own, handcrafted items, the opportunity to have a stall at some of our events. If anyone is interested in having a stall, for just £5 donation to Moot funds, please contact Annette. You can PM her on Facebook or ring her at home on 01603 749231. There will also be herbs, spices and resins available for purchase at talks and workshops. If there are any particular (legal) herbs you need, PM Val or ring her on 01603 666260.
We will keep you informed about what is going on through the website, the Facebook page and printed flyers which will be handed out at events and available at various locations around the city.
We aim to make the moot as friendly, welcoming and supportive as possible. So please feel free to contact us via the contact form on the website or by PM on Facebook if you have any questions, ideas or things you would like to talk about. If you prefer you can ring Annette on 01603 749231 or Chris and Val on 01603 667314.
