'The Traditional Magic of the Roma', at Torbay Interfaith Forum


The Torbay Interfaith Forum brings together people who are interested in learning more about the beliefs and practices of the different faiths across Torbay.

The Forum aims to foster greater understanding and friendship between people from different local faith groups, and to encourage among the general public a greater appreciation of the rich diversity of belief and practices within our own society and beyond.

For years the Forum has organised talks form a wide range of traditions – and has hosted speakers from our Christian, Moslem, Pagan, Jewish, Buddhist, Atheist, Humanist, Hindu, and other communities.

The latest in a series of these talks on the Bay’s faith traditions is on Wednesday 13th November 2019 at 7.30pm and is on ‘The Traditional Magic of the Roma’ .

The guest speaker is Natalia Ivend.

Natalia has previously given two very popular talks, and this time she will explore for us the magical traditions of the Roma. Natalia is an author of books in the Romani language and is very active in the preservation of the language, culture and history of the Roma.

All are welcome to the Quaker Meeting House, 48 Tor Hill Road, Torquay, TQ2 5RT
