Wyrd Sisters. Pratchett’s Macbeth
The Three Witches, or Weird Sisters (old English: wyrd), are characters in Shakespeare’s Macbeth, who occasionally overlap with Terry Pratchett’s witches in The Wyrd Sisters. Martin investigates the crone/ mother/maiden triad for further insights.

Bathing for Change: The Lord and Lady of Bath
Do you dream, post-festival, of filling the tub with suds, sinking down into the warm water and memories of the week just past? This year, you can combine the best of both worlds, when Martin Pearson hosts The Lord and Lady of Bath on 1 January: an auction where you’ll bid for one of two places to enjoy fresh towels, clean pyjamas, and a deep tub full of Dr. Bronner’s beautiful scents to raise money for Ranu Welum which supports the replanting of rainforests in Borneo. The auction will be open all week online, silent auction style, and will be finalised just prior to the Fire Event on WED. Join Martin Pearson for a special reading as we fill the baths, heat the towels, and then leave the two lucky winners to the first soak of the new year. Ranu Welum is campaigning to protect, restore and replant some the world’s oldest rainforests in Borneo which are currently under threat due to unsustainable palm plantations. Dr. Bronner’s is proud to support Ranu Welum and Bathing for Change, and is proof that it’s not what you grow but how you grow it that counts! Dr. Bronner’s sources certified organic and fair trade palm oil exclusively from small-holder farms in Ghana, through their sister company, Serendipalm. So, the lucky Lord and Lady can bathe with a clean conscience and support the preservation of rainforests and endangered habitat! (NB: Lord and Lady are non-gender specific, any person can bid for any spot.)
