facts about


Double double, toil and trouble. Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

Witches (and wizards) wield magic with a wave of a wand, a wiggle of a nose and the snap of a finger. Whether they are from Oz, Camelot, the Discworld — or the most magical land of all, Scotland — witches and wizards have made us spell-bound.

Be like a black cat and make yourself familiar to these witch facts.
