Welcome to the official website of the Pagan Federation in the United Kingdom.

The Pagan Federation's Mission Statement is...
To Promote and Defend the Pagan Traditions

The PF regards membership of any organisations that refuse to support
freedom of religion and equality of race, gender, and sexual orientation, as
incompatible with our aims, objectives and values.


The Pagan Federation is an organisation that any Pagan may join. The Pagan Federation is continually active in bringing Pagans together to promote and educate about Paganism in the wider community. Local and national events are organised and advertised through this website, Pagan Dawn and District websites. See our Membership for details of how to join the PF or take out a subscription to Pagan Dawn.

Aims and Objectives

The Aims and Objectives of the Pagan Federation as set out in the Constitution are:

  1.     To seek to support all Pagans in their personal and public life, to help ensure that they have the same rights as the followers of other beliefs and members of other religions.
  2.     To promote a positive profile for Pagans and Paganism and to provide information on Pagan paths and beliefs to the media, official bodies and the greater community.
  3.     To facilitate effective communication, education and dialogue within and between Pagan communities and with non Pagans, through publications and events.


What makes a Pagan?

A definition of a Pagan:
    A follower of a polytheistic or pantheistic nature-worshipping religion.
A definition of Paganism:
    A polytheistic or pantheistic nature-worshipping religion.

There are many answers to this, briefly Paganism encompasses the indigenous belief of a country. So before any human-centric religions developed there were many other spiritual traditions in each country. For example Druids in Celtic countries, Shamans in many countries including Native America and Siberia, Shinto in Japan, Witchcraft and Wicca, Norse Tradition and many other traditions. We shall be developing new pages about Pagan people and their beliefs showing the wide range of Pagan beliefs and also our similarities.

The Pagan Federation from its beginning in 1971 campaigned to have Paganism recognised as a valid spiritual path and for the rights of Pagans to hold and practise their beliefs openly without fear of retribution or condemnation from those who viewed these beliefs as being evil or otherwise. The Pagan Federation has been succesful in this area. Paganism is now officially recognised. The Pagan Federation continues to work both alone and with other Pagan Organizations in promoting awareness of Paganism to individual Government departments, the general public and individual enquirers. To this end The Pagan Federation publishes various information packs about Paganism in general and the different Pagan paths that come under the general heading of Paganism. The Pagan Federation supports any Pagan, irrespective of whether they are a member or not, in times of need. This may include providing factual information in cases such as child custody disputes, supporting those suffering from harassment for being a Pagan and even providing expert witnesses or legal advice if necessary. The Pagan Federation continues to campaign or support campaigns in many areas that are of concern or interest to the majority of Pagans such as environmental issues and human rights.

The Pagan Federation is a voluntary organisation and cannot exist without the support of our members and donations.
