Druidcraft is a spiritual practice embracing elements of both Druidry and Wicca, developed by Philip Carr-Gomm, the Chief Druid of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. It is also the title of a book written about the same topic by Philip Carr-Gomm (ISBN 0-00-713388-X). This book deals with the combination of druidry and wicca in a new, combined practice.
Within this book, Carr-Gomm claims that the differences between Wicca and Druidry do not stem from hundreds or thousands of years worth of tradition as these two distinct paths evolved separately. He claims that in fact the differences between modern Wicca and Druidism are due to the differences between two friends, Gerald Gardner and Ross Nichols who were deeply involved with these paths less than 75 years ago.
There is an active Druidcraft Groven in Glasgow, Scotland, UK. "Tuatha de Bridget" is an open group that hosts all eight festival ceremonies of the Wheel of the Year. The group has official permission and backing of Glasgow City Council Land Services and holds their gatherings on an Ancient Earthworks in the North Wood area of Pollok Country Park in Glasgow. Dates for all their ceremonies can be found in several places: Facebook/Tuathadebridget; www.tuathadebridget.co.uk also on Yahoogroups, look for the Tuatha de Bridget group.
