The Druid and the Vicar

March 2nd, 2010

On 10th April Mark Townsend (a very accomplished and much loved magician) and I are going to work together for an afternoon in a corrugated iron church outside Lewes called the ‘Tin Tab’ (as in Tabernacle). The event has been arranged by Transition Towns Lewes. Here is the bit about it from their newsletter:

The Druid and The Priest- touching the hidden gold
Saturday April 10, 1-7pm, The Tin Tabernacle in Barcombe
Human hearts and souls are hard-wired to the cycle of the seasons. But most of us need to re-connect. Two expert celebration-makers – Mark Townsend, a Christian priest, and our ever-popular leading Druid Philip Carr-Gomm – will help create a post-modern celebration of renewal. The workshop ends with a show of magic from Mark, a man who Uri Geller called ‘amazing and inspirational!’ Please book soon because tickets will be limited.  £20 each  (negotiable)
Email transitiontownlewes@googlemail.com to book, or phone 07855 777715

Here is a recent interview with Mark:

Stop BBC Cuts

March 2nd, 2010

The BBC is considering sweeping cuts, cutting its website in half and dropping TV and radio stations. The reason: to enrich corporate media. According to a story in the Times, the proposal is a bid to “shrink” in order to “appease the BBC’s rivals.” If this goes forward, it’s a giveaway to Rupert Murdoch, who sees the BBC as a threat to his profits.

The BBC is a global treasure. Public outcry has prevented BBC cuts before, now we can save it again! Sign the petition and pass it along — let’s get to 100,000 signatures before we deliver it to the BBC Trust later this week, so they know the UK, and the world, want the Beeb to stand strong:
