Date and time

Friday 20th March 2020, 12:00 - 15:00



In celebration of York Literature Festival 2020, we will be hosting an intimate lunch event with historian, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb, on Friday, 20 March. Throughout the event, Suzannah will be covering the topic of witchcraft. Witchcraft beliefs have been around for thousands of years, but there was one moment in history when witches were perceived to be especially dangerous: in Europe between 1450 and 1750, large numbers of people were persecuted, prosecuted, and executed for being witches. During this special event, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb explores why.

This one-off event will be hosted in our beautiful private dining room, The Etty Room. The ticket will include a three-course meal served with wine, plus teas and coffees post dessert.
