WITCHES and pagans will celebrate their beliefs, and way of life, at a festival in the shadow of Pendle Hill next month.

The Pendle Witch camp is returning to Trawden, and will be staged on the recreation ground over the weekend of June 21 to 23.

Organisers have dedicated the 9th summer solstice celebration in memory of Anthony Lockwood, who died from a heart attack on his way to Stonehenge the day after leaving the festival last year.

The event will feature talks, music, complementary and holistic therapies, drumming, theatre, storytelling, stalls, and cafes. Organiser Adrian Lord said he hoped up to 200 people would attend. Tickets cost £40.
