Merry Meet Everyone,

Here's my review of WitchFest Wales. If you don’t know, WitchFest is an organisation run by the Children of Artimes, who hold them every year.

I went to the one in Cardiff, as this was the closest one to me (living in Wales and all) . It was absolutely phenomenal! The atmosphere was electrifying and the people were the nicest I’ve every met (well, all Pagans and Wiccan are!)

There were Esoteric Stalls all through the day, all specialising in their own things. Some stalls sold cloaks and robes and ritual attire, others sold ritual items and ingredients such as Athame’s, Book of Shadows’, dream pillows (stuffed with herbs) and Fairy Dust. There were Pagans playing all different instruments which set a Celtic feeling to the whole experience. The CoA staff had their own stall which sold items that you can purchase from their site, such as T Shirts saying “Protected by Witchcraft” and “Witchfest” and things bumper stickers saying “My other car’s a broom”, and also the usual books by the day’s speakers.

I bought a beautiful cloak which hugs me from the cold; its black with a green lining with a hood. I took my “The Real Witches Handbook” by Kate West for her to sign it.

Speakers Kate West and Cassandra Eason were brilliant and were the highlight of my day. Kate West’s talk was about “Hexes and Curses the way forward” was amazing, and fully packed with helpful tips and personal experiences. Cassandra Eason’s was about “Workshop – Understanding Auras or Crystal Power”, which again embraced the audience with information about the chakras, energy fields and crystal healing and power. A talk by Tanis called “Magic and the art of mind control” was superb, as he told and showed us how to control the energy that is made during spells and rituals, and what to do with that energy once you are finished creating it. Galatea also gave a fantastic talk about “The Egyptian Tradition in the Modern Age”, which talked all about Egyptian Gods and Goddess, and how they differ from others. She also gave a belly dance, which at this point me and my friends left, in fear of being pulled up onto the stage, haha!

All speakers were superb and CoA couldn’t have had a better line up. The Esoteric traders packed up their stalls and items at 7.30 PM, to make way for the alternative rock and pop bands, of which Kitty Hudson was playing. Me and my friends left at 7.30 PM, as we were all tired! The opening and closing blessing ritual was in both English and Welsh (as we were in Wales) , and I was so pleased that I could understand the Welsh part of it (I can speak Welsh) , and it really added a bit of mystery to start of the and end the day.

Try and go to any event organised by CoA; they’re well worth the money and effort. I’m anticipating next years one now, and everybody that I have spoken to cannot wait either

Blessed Be and Merry Part
