Ben Emlyn-Jones at the Helen Duncan Convention

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 10 AM 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

Is there any we can entice you down south? Cucumber sandwiches perhaps? That is a fascinating subject (not the cucumber sandwiches) and a meeting I would very much like to attend, but it's too far away, living in Hertfordshire - the Mecca of the east!!! Joking aside, you may be interested in my talk with Michael Roll on: http://www.fockhamhallradio.com/page8.html

Hi Chris. Sorry it's too far for you. Hopefully this will be an annual event so maybe next year it will be somewhere closer
