Beltane 2018 – Fifth Anniversary

Beltane 2018 – Fifth Anniversary celebrates the sabbat of Beltane – when we dance, laugh, love and take joy in the Beltane energies of this time of year. At this time of fertility, growth and union of the Goddess and God we dance the maypole, weaving the energies of the masculine and feminine together.

The event is centered around a set of games with a mythic inspiration, leading into a Beltane ritual, with plenty of opportunities for socialising and workshops throughout the day and evening.
