TALES OF TREES BEWITCHED : Weird wanderings among Scottish trees
“To enter a wood is to pass into a different world in which we ourselves are transformed.” : Roger Deakin, Wildwood: A Journey through Trees
Our forests are haunted – places of ritual, imagination and the supernatural. Stuart Robbins will take us on a highly visual journey around Scotland in search of remarkable and mysterious individual trees, exploring their folktales, history and fortean themes including ghosts, witches, fairies and death.
Originally intended as a lockdown online Edinburgh Fortean event, Stuart will introduce his presentation. There’ll be a follow up Q&A session, and an opportunity to contribute with any weird tree tales you have to tell.
