We missed out last week on news and updates, as we were out of the office on a much-needed long weekend. We hope you enjoyed the long weekend, whatever you did with it!

HekseCast aims to bring you news and updates of interest every Thursday. If you are involved in an organisation which is relevant or know of any events, please do get in touch to have your news/event featured here.

ISON are releasing their second official studio album next week. Called Unison, they will also be releasing their newest music video for one of their brand new songs, Stranger79.

ISON was born in autumn 2012 after a trip to the south of England, the period in which the comet with the same name was discovered. Alec and Daniele have created this experience by mixing the respective music peculiarities, finding a synthesis in the world of electronic music. Trip-hop, ethereal, ambient, darkwave and dream pop blend in mystic and dreamy atmospheres.

Two voices in harmony merge with the soft and industrial sounds of the instrumental compositions: brass, strings and drums are geometrically tuned to the variety of synthetic noises.

Circle of Spears Productions are set to start performing their play WITCH from 5th May at the Boscastle Museum of Witchcraft and Magic.

I wanted to be able to combine my knowledge of history with my love of theatre and came up with the idea of dramatising actual transcripts from English witch trials in order to explore the social issues which contributed to accusations of witchcraft. I also wanted to find a performance space that was both intimate and evocative.
Where better to perform a play about witch trials than in the library at the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic?
