Tony Stockwell - Mediumship Friday 18th Sep - 7:30 PM Saffron Walden Town Hall £19.50 - £23.00

An Evening of Mediumship with TV Psychic Tony Stockwell

It’s NOT creepy or kooky, mysterious or spooky. It’s Psychic Medium Tony Stockwell demonstrating his belief that those who have passed can communicate with their loved ones.

At its best, Mediumship has the potential to change someone’s life and to instil in them a sense of peace, comfort and purpose.  Psychic Medium Tony Stockwell is not a new kid on the block and during his 25 years working as a medium he has constantly worked to improve his game and push the boundaries of his communication.  In that time he has had umpteen television programmes, taught at some of the most respected schools for mediumistic development as well as setting up his own training school for developing mediums.

Tony Stockwell: Sensitive and inspirational, his messages are amazingly detailed and always humorous

Tony Stockwell is a Spiritualist Medium and spirit communication is part of his own religious belief, but the organisers of the event accept differing opinions exist regarding mediumship. Any demonstration of mediumship is an experiment and results are not guaranteed.
