Legend of the Witches (Leigh, 1970): Prince Charles Cinema, 6.15pm

The screening of this cult documentary is presented by The Final Girls and will be followed by a Q&A after the film.

Prince Charles Cinema introduction:
The originally X-rated film documentary which looks in detail at previously hidden magic rites and rituals. Sharing the secrets of initiation into a coven, divination through animal sacrifice, ritual scrying, the casting of a 'death spell', and the chilling intimacy of a Black Mass. It also explores Britain's hidden pagan heritage and its continued influence on our lives today. An absolute capsule of the witch-craze that shook Britain in the seventies, which we will discuss in depth in a post-screening panel discussion.

Here (and above) is an extract.
