Nottingham's Ashley Mortimer is a director of The Centre For Pagan Studies, a trustee of the Doreen Valiente Foundation and Esoteric Heritage. A representative of a number of pagan organisations and is well known as a spokesman on paganism and witchcraft in the media.
Ashley is an initiated High Priest of the old religion, the Wica, tracing his initiatory lineage back to Gerald Gardner but he has led an ecclectic life and spiritual journey crossing many traditions and paths. He is an occasional writer, even more occasional musician and a prolific contributor to many different Pagan events and interests. He gives talks and lectures on the origins of Paganism, the history of Wicca/Witchcraft and its modern practices and meaning. Ashley approaches ceremony and ritual with an ecclectic and pragmatic outlook underpinned with what he hopes is common sense and a warm (but sometimes groan-worthy!) humour.
