This is the website for the annual Leaping Hare convention, which is held every spring in Colchester, Essex, Britain. We will update this site with information about each forthcoming convention, as well as featuring reviews of previous years.

The 2017 convention went very well and I think those attending will agree that the quality of talks and workshops was high this year. We'd like to thank Andrew, Adrienne, Keziah, Johnathan, Robert, Fiona, Sam, Rhys & Martika, and Clan Ogma for all their sterling performances. Our thanks go to all the volunteers on the day ~ particularly Venetia for coordinating everything, John for manning the door, Terry for emceeing and booking the stalls, and Barry for opening the day. Without the volunteers from the Colchester Pagan Network, this event could simply not happen. We would also like to thank the stallholders, readers, and of course the people who attended on the day for making the whole event so enjoyable.

If you would like to book a stall (please note they tend to sell out quite a few months in advance) contact stalls, offer your skills as a speaker/performer for the 2018 event on Saturday 24th March, or purchase a ticket then please email the address below.

Tickets are also available from Philipa on 07564 28823807564 or via [email protected]

Ticket prices are £6.50 in advance, or £8 on the door. Disabled people bringing non-pagan carers can request a free ticket for one carer.
