Thank you for visiting! I’m Cat Treadwell, a Druid Priest living in Derbyshire, England with my partner and animal family. I’m a professional ritual celebrant and multifaith worker, travelling throughout the East Midlands and beyond. My first book, ‘A Druid’s Tale’ was published in 2012, with the second, ‘Facing the Darkness‘, in October 2013.
I’m a Trustee of The Druid Network and ordained Awenydd (Priest) of The Anglesey Druid Order; also Regional Coordinator (Derbyshire) for the East Midlands Pagan Federation and Honorary Member of The Centre for Pagan Studies. I’m a registered Pagan Chaplain, volunteering for Derbyshire Hospitals and the Prison Service.
I’m a regular speaker on BBC Radio Derby and Nottingham, and have appeared on BBC News on behalf of The Druid Network and East Midlands Ambulance Service. I’m a contributor to the international ‘Witches & Pagans‘ site, columnist for ‘Pagan Dawn’ magazine, and I’ve also survived multifaith days at schools in full Druid regalia, as well as various encounters with national journalists (notably here and here).
My partner and I regularly perform handfasting rites around the UK, as well as funeral ceremonies and rites of passage as required. As part of our work, promises were made to stand up publicly for our faith when called upon to do so – and thus, here I am.
It takes a fair bit to offend me, so please feel free to ask questions, leave comments or just chat – I’m happy to hear from you if you’ve found my writings. I am also on Facebook if you’d like to see more regular updates on what I’m doing, as well as more lovely photos of us in action.
Thanks for visiting.
