Full biographies and synopses will appear here in due course.

Friday 24th July 2015


Francine is a very well-known crop circle researcher and was the founder of the Wiltshire Crop Circle Study Group, which ran for 19 years. To celebrate the Symposium’s 25th anniversary, Francine gives us her unique overview and summing-up of the ever-enduring and beautiful circle phenomenon, which was one of the main focuses of our early conferences and still fascinates people today.


In another nod to our anniversary year, author, historian and life coach Paul will take us on a journey to discover the roots of what has led to Glastonbury having become one of the spiritual capitals of the world, investigating its intriguing history, in particular its modern ascent into global prominence with its many earth mysteries, UFO sightings and the ongoing fascination with the ‘Glastonbury Zodiac’.


Jayney is one of the world’s leading natural health authorities and president of the Complementary Medical Association (CMA), editing its influential journal as well as being the Discovery Channel’s complementary medicine expert.  Jayney will reveal how the world of ‘Big Pharma’ has succeeded in restricting our personal health choices and explores how we can all help to balance this and find our own ways to healthy living.


Founder of the Stop Smart Meters UK project, passionate campaigner Mike shows us why the current official push to install ‘Smart’ meters in all of our homes poses not only serious health risks, but also gives authorities and hackers an open window of surveillance into our lives, with a high potential of misuse. Mike informs us as to what we can do to avoid the Smart invasion!


Peter is a philosopher, seer and geomancer who gives teaching and training in the core truths of Western wisdom traditions. One of his specialties is investigating the real life of William Shakespeare, and Peter will share with us just why so many scholars today now question the full background of this most renowned playwright, and investigates the possibilities that may lie behind the ‘Shakespeare mysteries’ and the deep esoteric truths buried in his writings.


One of Britain’s most respected harpists, as well as being a seasoned writer, presenter and philosopher, John, an old friend of the Symposium, will be sharing some beautiful and inspiring harp performances, threaded together with fascinating explanatory links.


Michael is a renowned South African ancient mysteries researcher, political activist and fervent truth issues campaigner. His work in revealing the hidden importance of both times past and things concealed from us today in the public arena has attracted increasing prominence in recent years. Michael, our special guest Friday night speaker, will give an overview of his heartfelt convictions and help open minds to some key issues of our times.

Saturday 25 July 2015


As well as being the Symposium’s co-MC, Andy is one of the world’s leading mysteries and conspiracies researchers. He is author of many books, including the acclaimed The Truth Agenda and Conspiracies: The Facts - The Theories - The Evidence, as well as the classic crop circle guides Vital Signs and An Introduction to Crop Circles. Andy will be investigating the leading alternative issues of the day and monitoring the key shifts of social, political and spiritual awareness occurring all around us.


UK publisher of Nexus Magazine, Marcus is one of the leading questioners of the NASA Moon landings, as well as being an investigator of ancient mysteries and lost technology. For the Symposium’s 25th anniversary, Marcus re-visits the unending controversies around all the lunar conspiracy thinking - still growing after all these years! - and highlights the evidence which shows just why it is that the issue simply refuses to go away.


Following the success of 2014’s new, sleeker and pacier discussion format for the Symposium, once again we offer a  chance to participate in a fast-moving audience debate with a panel of distinguished guests from the world of truth-seeking and mysteries research. Some are speakers from the weekend and others not, animatedly sifting matters arising from the issues of the event, and beyond.


Author of many books on the paranormal, the occult and ufology, and currently editor of Phenomena magazine, Brian will explore the way in which various intelligence agencies have ruthlessly exploited ufology for their own dark ends. Invariably this is to provide an effective cover for developments in a range of military and civilian aerospace technologies, while covering up real visits by non-human entities that do not originate in our version of reality.


A student of shamanism for over a decade, training in Britain and in the desert of Mexico, Jez has travelled widely and undertaken many ceremonies with indigenous elders. For the Symposium, Jez will apply his experiences working as a full time shamanic practitioner to see how the world could benefit from the deeper understanding of such disciplines, especially with regard to establishing genuinely meaningful concepts of ‘freedom’ and ‘liberty’.


Dan has been a dedicated crop circle researcher for many years and is the founder of the UK Crop Circles website as well as being a regular guide for the Devizes Lectures conference. Dan will focus on looking at often unacknowledged but important evidence based on his own hands-on ground research in amongst the crop circles of more recent years, showing how physical surveying is as important as aerial photography in understanding the phenomenon.


The traditional appearance of Glastonbury’s inspirational acapella choir, which has performed at many prestigious events, including the Three Choirs Festival and, naturally, the Glastonbury Festival. The choir present rousing and inspirational choral pieces from around the world, sung with enthusiastic energy to open the Saturday night proceedings, providing uplifting, beautiful entertainment.


Respected researcher and author Anthony deals with borderline areas of human consciousness.  Since his first book, Is There Life After Death? in 2006, he has gone on to develop more of his own ideas in exploring the latest areas of research in his field of the near-death phenomenon. In this presentation, Anthony reveals the findings of his latest book, The Immortal Mind: Science and the Continuity of Consciousness Beyond the Brain, a joint project with Professor Ervin Laszlo.

Sunday 26 July 2015


Alex is a well-known TV and radio presenter and Cult TV expert, who currently presents the weekly Internet TV/radio show ‘Doomwatch’ for UK Column and Peterborough FM, airing the important truth issues of the moment. Alex will be exposing further the themes of his recent novel, Mindful, which examines the hidden messages of modern TV shows and supposedly fictional media - could it be that those who rule from the shadows are actually telling us what they are planning..?


An expert in Ophthalmic Optics by trade, Richard is also a founder member of the Parallel Community project and a one-time council member of the Centre for Crop Circle Studies. Richard will discuss the themes of his forthcoming book, revealing the background to today’s modern geopolitical and spiritual turmoil and looking at how any proposed ‘revolution’ to transform them must embody a return to harmony and sanity in equal measure, suggesting some important practical solutions along the way.


Palden is a multi-disciplinary thinker and communicator, astrologer and geomancer with particular interest in geopolitics, esoterics, history and humanity. His latest book, Power Points in Time, is his seventh, and he has regularly spoken at the Symposium on and off since its second event back in the early 1990s. Palden will talk about the globalisation process and planetarisation of consciousness, and review what's happened at the Symposium over the last 25 years, ‘since it's a microcosmic stream of consciousness encapsulating our times of change’.


Christopher is one of the most renowned investigators of ancient technology, and his book The Giza Power Plant is revered as one of the best alternative analyses of the Egyptian pyramids. His background in engineering and aerospace technology has led him to investigate the origins of many other ancient cultures, particularly South American, including the amazing Inca structures and lost civilizations in Bolivia. Christopher will explore his latest exciting findings and insights.


Sometimes known as ‘the mystical physician’, Christine has over thirty years of experience in the caring professions as doctor and homeopath, and is the author of many influential books, including Frontiers of Health. Also a gifted intuitive, mystic and alchemist, she will share her latest thinking on the important need for ‘dragon energy’ to return to Britain and its sacred sites, looking at the crucial work that is currently going on to reactivate important power points, including those highlighted by the ongoing crop circle phenomenon.

SUNDAY EVENING (must be booked separately)


Dr Iain McGilchrist is a former Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and former Consultant Psychiatrist and Clinical Director at the Bethlem Royal & Maudsley Hospital, London. He has been a Research Fellow in neuroimaging at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore. Of his many books, he is renowned for the enormously influential and much-praised The Master and his Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World (Yale 2009), which he will discuss at the Symposium: ‘We are led to believe that somehow the brain can give us the answer to many questions about ourselves. Frustratingly it is often thought to answer questions it can never answer, and to have little or nothing to say about the very things it can most helpfully illuminate.  Can we sort the wheat from the chaff..?’
