Please let us know by booking a place here: (Link for tickets)
(We operate a booking system so we know how many people to expect and, if we are in the Temple so it does not go over capacity for Health and Safety reasons. If for any reason you are struggling to meet the small donation please do contact us via Face Book or email and we can book a place. )
Our Beltane celebrations this year will be a little different as we are meeting for an experiential workshop in the woods at 3pm on April 30th, followed by a community picnic until 6pm, when we will be processing through the woods to the ritual field to begin our Beltane ceremony and revelries at 6pm-8.30. It will be beautiful, playful, and a lovely community event.
We will meet at 3pm at the Discovery Centre Cafe in Ecclesall woods, please bedeck yourself with flowers and festive regalia or wear something in Beltane colours in red or green and so that we can recognise one another, cut out a heart shape badge, stick a
safety pin to the back of it and wear it on your coat. Someone will gather us all together and take us into the woods where the workshop activities will begin from 3-5pm.
Please bring waterproofs in case of rain and and wear strong shoes for walking
Something to sit on and a blanket for the evening if it gets chilly.
A picnic, a cup, torch or lantern, and if you have them, drums, rattles and bells
If you are planning only to come to the ritual, please come to the Discovery Centre for 5.45pm
where someone will meet you to take you to the starting place for the procession and elemental blessings
Although we are not using the Temple for this ceremony it is important to book, so that we know who is coming
