Association of Polytheist Traditions

Meeting Up

The APT held its inaugural meeting at Abbot's Bromley in 2004 and its first AGM in Lancaster in 2005. In 2006 we held a conference in Preston in association with the AGM and in 2007 we were in Manchester. In May 2008 we held a mini-conference in Birmingham and hope to have more such during 2008-09, in different areas of the UK. Watch this space for details!

Our Conference pages give an idea of what we've done already.

Below are a listing of moots organised by APT members. These are local or regional meetings, usually held in pubs, which provide a chance for polytheists to meet and socialise.
