Witches concoct a gentle brew at first market

Belly dancing and a talk on the real' Robin Hood livened up a witches market in Dorchester.

Stalls selling ceremonial gowns, tarot cards and crystals were set up at the Corn Exchange.

Part of the day's events included a talk from Professor Ronald Hutton of Bristol University about an outlaw who lived in Yorkshire in 1220 and made his name by helping a knight who was being taken advantage of by local clergymen.
