The mere mention of Bloomsbury’s Treadwell Books sends me into a tizz. This is for those of you who are vowing to be a bit more proactive or experimental in the new year…a journey into the “magical world of some native British psychotropic plants and fungi. Steeped in political history, many of the psychoactive herbs will be looked at but particularly focusing on the deadly nightshade or Solanaceae family. In an afternoon of talk, tastings and creative writings, students will learn some of the history, medicinal and magical applications of these herbs.” Get down to Bloomsbury and embrace your inner witch.
12th January, Treadwell Books, Store Street, WC1.
