The Horsingdon Transmissions No.120: Hex Night in Horsingdon

May Eve. Walpurgis. Hexennacht. Known in Horsingdon as 'Hex Night', the night of April 30th is when all right-minded locals ensure that their doors and windows are tightly secured, and when the streets are all but deserted after 9pm. Even so, come morning, there will be reports of at least one disappearance, and neighbours will speak in hushed tones of what the lights they saw dancing upon the crown of Horsingdon Hill under a horned moon portend - and whether whatever sacrifice made by the guardians of the Black Bowers the previous night was successful in propitiating Those Who Wait for yet another year.
