Visit The Hampshire Witch Project to learn about local witchcraft. Witchcraft or Wicca is an ancient religion that is still practised in Hampshire today;

The Hampshire Witch Project explores how people in the area have practised witchcraft past and present, and, how people have reacted to the presence of witchcraft.

Find out about local characters such as ‘Kit Knox’, read about her legend and enter a reconstruction of her living room. See how people protected themselves from witchcraft when the fear was great… see real archaeological examples found hidden in Hampshire walls. Discover the truth behind the popular image of the witch and watch the candid interview with modern day practising Wiccans; listen to them explain what they believe in their own words. See the tools of the craft that modern, practising, Hampshire Wiccans use, and what they mean. Smell herbs and spices and learn how these are used in magical rituals.

The Hampshire Witch Project shows how witchcraft has been misrepresented; have a look for yourself and see if you agree.
