Witches and Witchfinders - A Talk With Dr Jo Bath

Dr Jo Bath will come to the suitably gothic surroundings of the Black Gate to talk about one of the darkest episodes in Newcastle’s history – the Witch Hunt of 1649, which saw 15 people hanged on the Town Moor for the crime of sorcery. Jo is the author of Dancing with the Devil and Other True Tales of Northern Witchcraft and is an authority on crime and punishment and witches in Early Modern England. If you want to delve deeper into this grisly side of Newcastle’s past, this is your chance!

Doors are at 5.30pm talk starts at 6pm.
