Welcome to The Catbox!

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 Priest/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 (reaching No 1 in its categories on Amazon).

I’ve been a volunteer for East Midlands Pagan Federation; also Trustee of The Druid Network, Awenydd (Priest) of The Anglesey Druid Order and Honorary Member of The Centre for Pagan Studies. I’m a professional Pagan Chaplain, volunteering for Derbyshire Hospitals and previously employed by the HM Prison Service.

I’m a regular speaker on BBC Radio Derby and Nottingham, and have appeared on BBC News. I’ve contributed to numerous international websites and publications, been a 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).

I regularly perform Handfasting (Pagan wedding) rites around the UK and abroad, as well as funeral ceremonies and rites of passage as required. Years ago, I promised to stand up publicly for my faith when called upon to do so – and thus, here I am.

I also love to help other small publishers and creative folks, so I volunteer as a reviewer for several publications and websites. Links and transcripts can be found with on my Reviews page.

It takes a fair bit to offend me, so please feel free to ask questions, leave comments or just explore – I’m happy to hear from you if you’ve found my writings. I’m also on most social media if you’d like to see more regular updates on what I’m doing, as well as more lovely photos of myself and my partner in action.

It’s lovely to ‘meet’ you!
