Magic is one of those subjects that interests everyone, even if it is only a passing interest. Witches have always been associated with magic, so discover how a witch hunting mania swept through East Anglia.

Hear how this man, Matthew Hopkins, spread terror amongst the populace and learn how he caused the deaths of so many women, although there were some men as well.

Discover when the witch craze finally ended (or has it?) and see what you can do to protect yourself from a witch's spell.

The presentation lasts for about 60 minutes and is suitable for ages, including schools.
