summer solstice gathering request

Postby creature » Tue Apr 22, 2008 10:47 am

Hi all

Does anyone know of any other events for Saturday night 21st June, Summer Solstice day.

We cant get to Stonehenge due to work on the Friday.

I would love to hear of any gatherings of like minded pagans.

Love and light

Bekki. xxx :lol:

how far do you want to travel?
there are loads all over the country so if you dont mind the travel and camping there are lots of options, best to do a google :)

There's a brilliant one held at Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh every year. There is also Stonehenge, but there is currently a petition to keep all but pagans/heathens/druids out, so who knows.

Damh the Bard's group often do something for solstice, too.

there is going to be a 'managed open access' to stonehenge this year...

a long list of do's and dont's of course but that means a peaceful celebration rather than the raves of old, which is no bad thing :)

I should make the effort and go, see if I can coax someone to have a day-night or whatever, it is a busy time but may just manage it :P

watch this space & lookout for a hat & T-shirt (dont think they would let me in like that so i will be dressed a little more :lol:
