New Forest Fairy Festival

The village of Burley is only a ten minute drive away from Moortown Lodge and has a long association with all things magical and mystical, particularly witches. Sybil Leek, a self-styled white witch, lived there in the 1950s and was often seen in the village before moving to the USA. Hence the Fairy Festival, on 16th-17th August, often attracts thousands of people, with fancy dress, horse and cart rides and even mediumship to enjoy.
