There will be a Helen Duncan Convention on the Friday the 21st and
Saturday the 22nd of August
2015. The venue will be The Victory Club, 85
Chellaston Road, Derby, DE24-9AF.
Tickets cost £5 per day on the door. Doors open both days. This is the first ever event of its kind which is
being organized by Margaret Hahn, Helen's granddaughter, who is campaigning to
have her grandmother pardoned, see: http://helenduncan.org/.
I'm very glad to be involved because I have been following Helen Duncan's case
and feel strongly about it. I have made three films on the subject; here is the
latest with some updates: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/helen-duncan-wartime-psychic-jailed.html.
I will be speaking at the first Helen Duncan Convention on the history of the 1944
"Witchcraft Trial" and the suspicious circumstances surrounding it.
I'll be exploring the political implications of what was done to Helen Duncan
all those years ago. Margaret will talk about who her grandmother was as a
person and the role she played in her family. If this conference is a success
then it will hopefully become an annual event until such time as the government
secrets about Helen Duncan are revealed. Regular HPANWO-readers will know that
I'm also giving a presentation on Helen Duncan at an upcoming Bases Project
Conference, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2015/05/ben-emlyn-jones-to-speak-at-bases-at.html. #helenduncan
