London Tarot Festival 2017: Mini Report

May 24, 2017

 

 

 

The London Tarot Festival is one of the highlights of my summer. I've been for the past 3 years since it started and every year is more packed with Tarot goodness than the previous. This great little day out is hosted by Kim Arnold who also runs the UK Tarot Conference and Geraldine and Bali Beskin of the Atlantis Book shop.  There are always lots of free talks, paid workshops and Tarot shopping to be had. Here's my little round up of this years event. 

 

The husband and I were up bright and early to tackle the trains to the venue. We live out in the sticks on the Kent/Surrey borders. Its always a little longer travelling into central London with a wheelchair too. Despite leaving home with dawn's crack still firmly in view, we managed to arrive at the Islington Ecology Centre  after the first paid workshop had already started.

 

Avril Price was speaking on using mediumship and channelling with Tarot. I really didn't want to disrupt the class half way through though so we had a look at the stalls and grabbed something to eat. The cakes on sale were really good. I managed to resist having more than one though, barely! 

 

The Atlantis book ladies host a Tombola stall every year as well as run their always well stocked stall of decks, books and accessories. For those who've never seen one, a Tombola is a kind of raffle game but the prizes are pre allocated to tickets in a hat or drum and you win instantly. I have had extraordinary luck at previous years games to the point the ladies probably see me coming and cross themselves.. well not quite ;) This year I was not quite as lucky but it is always great to give back and I did other players a favour by removing so may losing tickets. I was blessed to win the Chrysalis Tarot Book and the beautiful Soul Trees Oracle  however.
