Nottingham Empyrean History

Nottingham Pagan Interest Group

A group of pagans from all paths who meet to listen to guest speakers who
talk to us about varied subjects, not necessarily pagan, but of interest to pagans.

We meet on the first Wednesday of every month at the Theosophical Hall on Maid Marian Way in Nottingham
(next door to the Salutation Inn) at 7.30 for 8.00pm
Talks usually finish around 9.30-10pm when we go to the Salutation pub next door for a drink and a friendly social chat

Admission is £4 (or £3.50 for Pagan Federation members and £2.00 for the unwaged)

What does "Empyrean" mean?

DO YOU HAVE A SUGGESTION FOR A SPEAKER?
