To celebrate Yule, we are very exited to announce that the Temple Puppeteers will be doing another of their magical puppet shows. Enter the magical world of Yule, where we will journey on another exciting adventure with Edene, meet the winter Cailleach and find out if dragons are real!
This performance is suitable for adults and children. Please make sure you book a place for each child unless they are small enough to sit on your knee. The performances will be inside the goddess temple so booking is required for this event.
Showings begin promptly at 12.00pm and 3pm.
Winter solstice songs and traditional Yuletide songs will be shared in the garden from 1pm-2.30pm.
You may wish to join in or share a poem that represents the changing of the season and celebrates the return of the sun.
Anwen will be serving her delicious homemade soup and will be made to order so must be booked in advance as part of the ticket if you choose this option.
Mince pies and mulled wine will be served additionally but on a first come first serve basis.

We had a magical event at the Sharrow Performing Art Space, manifested by the Sheffield Goddess Temple’s trainee priestesses of Brigantia. It was incredibly well attended and so we will be using this venue lots more next year.
On Sunday we celebrated the Autumn Equinox at The Goddess Temple with a beautiful ritual and Goddess workshop. It was so lovely to see many new faces and for us all to come together to share the magic of this time of year.
We are sorry but due to presenters having Covid we are cancelling this event. Hope very much to see you all at Autumn Equinox on 25th September.
Despite the showers we had a marvellous day of stalls, events and workshops. Many thanks to presenters, stall holders, crafters, Airy Fairy staff, Temple Melissas and most of all to our many wonderful participants.
The special art event ‘Goddess in Her Perfect Diversity’ went really well and we are exited about sharing more on this soon.
