Halloween & Autumn Festival 31st October - 5th November

Saxton is all set to host this year's 'Halloween & Autumn Festival', a week long celebration, from October 31st to Bonfire Night, on November 5th. Local folk have pulled together to make the Samhain Celebration extra special, with Apple Bobbing, Masks, The Halloween Triathlon and late disco, in The Bear.

"It's been a darker than normal year, for us Saxton folk" said pub land lady,
Morgan Mankle "after the tragic death of Professor. Hardacre, and the
incident with the missing cats, we all need something to cheer us up".

Events start at 6pm on Halloween, centred around Maiden Square, the site of the famous Witch Trials and Executions. Many pagans, men, women and children, met a grisly fate on the spot where you can get your face painted or enjoy a tasty hot dog.

Writer's Workshop

Marilyn Marvéll is hosting a series of 'writer's workshops', in the Drinking Den of The Bear, during Festival Week. It is not known whether Marilyn has the necessary talent to lecture others, as we have yet to read her book, or meet her, for that matter. But, if you're pretentious enough, perhaps this events is for you? There is a slim chance of cheese and wine afterwards, so it may be worth taking a look.

Excerpt -

'Neville pushed his way through the ancient Saxon tunnels, fighting at the urge to just scream like a girl and RUN from the old Northfield Kingdom.'
