Recent research tells us that children are “hardwired” from birth to connect with others, and that children who feel a sense of connection to their community, family, and school are less likely to misbehave. To be successful, contributing members of their community, children must learn necessary social and life skills. Join us for an evening to discuss power struggles, sibling conflict, morning and bedtime hassles, and respectful and effective tools to replace shouting, nagging, bribing and punishment.Find out more »
As the days darken the London Fortean Society explores the folklore, ghosts and curses of the British Isles with the one-day symposium ‘The Haunted Landscape’. Authors, experts and researchers discuss ghosts, strange beasts and magic. From a talking mongoose to soul birds, moving megaliths in the landscape to witch marks in old buildings; fairy lore and ghosts.
Join us at Conway Hall to learn that the green and pleasant land we abide in has dark, strange and chilling other side.
