Welcome to Digby-Pratt Hall, not far from the North Yorkshire coast.
The Castleford Ladies Magical Circle, complete with broomsticks (75p from Woolworths) and cat baskets (containing increasingly angry cats), have taken the country bus to Digby-Pratt Hall to meet the widow Ivy Armitage (from nearby Bridlington).
Tonight, 31 October 1978, they are conducting their annual hermetic rite of the summoning of the might of Beelzebub, which must be carried out during Samhain (tonight!) at the sacred stones in the grounds.
The hall was originally part of the nearby Convent of Our Lady of Perpetual Disappointment but is now owned by the National Trust. It is closed for winter, although the grounds are open all year round. (Dogs welcome.)
Unfortunately, not all of the Circle have made it tonight. While Germaine, Lizzie, Roger and Bill took the country bus, Ivy took her motorcycle and hasn’t arrived. So, with time ticking on and the threat of imminent rain, the four Circle members start the rite…
