Baphomet takes a stand

As Britain reels from a summer of Plinth mania, you might like to know that in the interests of psych-occultists everywhere, writer and chaosopher Julian Vayne will be taking to the People's Plinth in Trafalgar Square on Monday 24th August, from 10am-11am, dressed as Baphomet.

Baphomet, as I'm sure you know, is the enflamed hermaphrodite, bat-winged, demon god, alleged to have been worshipped by the Knights Templar, brought to widespread attention by the French occultist Eliphas Levi, and now championed by any self-respecting Chaos Magician intent on a bit of quiet afternoon's boundary dissolution.

But fear not, it's all in a good cause. Julian will be championing Boscastle's Witchcraft Museum, which, having nearly been washed away in the flash floods a few years back, needs a new roof.

Anyone who wants to come along and support Julian/Baphomet with a bit of drumming, chanting, or nepharious ritualising will be most welcome.
