Tracey Norman: Vixiana And The Demonisation Of The Witch Figure
Events Temporarily Postponed
Sat 20 Jun 2020
10am - 11am
In response to the developing coronavirus situation in the UK, Exeter Phoenix is currently closed to the public. This is a temporary measure and we reviewing this on a month-by-month basis. The vast majority of events will be rescheduled for later dates.
Please note that the team are working through rescheduling a very high volume of events, but please rest assured we will be in touch with all ticket holders in due course. Please bear with us during this time.
Unprecedented closures like this with no confirmed government support will be hugely damaging for charities like Exeter Phoenix and many other sectors. If you are in a position to consider making a donation HERE, we would be extremely grateful.
Dartmoor legend tells that at the foot of Vixen Tor was a cave hewn from the rock and home to the witch Vixiana who lured many unknowing travellers into the mires beneath the granite rock.
Historian and author Tracey Norman, who specialises in research into historical witchcraft trials and accusations, tells the story of Vixiana and asks whether she is just another in a long list of women who have been persecuted and demonised for their knowledge, or for just being other.
With talks, theatre, music, workshops and film, Vixen Tor is a celebration of the fierce women of folklore. See all the events that are part of Vixen-Tor here >>
