Abstract or Description

Annie Horniman (1860-1937) was well known for her work in setting up regional theatres in Dublin and Manchester. She was an artist and an activist, and was involved with the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn between 1890-1903. Many years later, in the 1930s, she joined the Theosophist Quest society formed by George R. S. Mead.

I co-organised and hosted this event, which brought together Viv Gardner, an established expert on Annie Horniman’s theatrical and political work, and Simon Costin, the director of the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, who has an established background in theatre design.
