I've always wondered why psychics need to advertise upcoming events - I mean, surely the gift of precognition would ensure they're already across everything?
But then it dawned on me that events like Selena Hill's Psychic Fair are not designed for clairvoyants, intuitives, mediums and light workers, but for the clients who come to them in search of spiritual direction and healing.

Over one enlightening family-friendly weekend at the RNA Showgrounds, Selena Hill's Psychic Fair will bring together a retinue of psychic readers, esoteric stall holders and live stage performers.
The event promises to allow attendees to explore alternative or complementary therapies, road test treatments or simply chat to experienced practitioners.
Others may wish to consult with a medium or psychic to receive life guidance or help with a particular issue.
Fair-goers will also have the opportunity to discover the esoteric, occult, eco-friendly, alternative and unusual items that can be hard to come by in our modern material world.
From incense to crystals, from natural oils to singing bowls – a peaceful and powerful enlightenment awaits you," says organiser Selena Hill.

Hill says she's just an ordinary person - "I don't look into crystal balls or wear gypsy clothes" - but with an extraordinary gift.
She claims to communicate directly with angels, speak to spirit guides and people who have passed over, and relay messages from them to her clients.
Hill says she realised she'd had psychic gifts as a child, but because she was afraid of them, had shut them down.
I know now that the feelings were senses," she says.
My own children are quite psychic and I can teach them and other children how to use the gift and not be afraid."
Hill has organised the weekend's schedule of free talks, demonstrations and workshops covering topics such as angel guidance, crystal healing, palmistry and astrology, to share her gifts, and the gifts of others.
"We hope to maintain a family feel, a welcoming feel and not a commercial feel like so many events do," she says.
