If the broom fits… Halloween & the History of Witches

October 20 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Have you ever wondered, especially on Halloween, why witches are depicted as riding on brooms through the nighttime sky? (It’s a story you may find difficult explaining to the kids!)

You’re never going to look at sweeping the same way again…

How did the benevolent image of a wise woman transform into the malevolent figure of the witch we know today?

Find out on Wednesday, October 20th at 7:30 pm on Zoom.

Ages 16+
