Beltane Festival 2017

To celebrate Beltane this year we attended the Beltane Festival 2017 at Butser Ancient Farm, for a day of music, feasting and storytelling. The festival pays tribute to it’s ancient pagan heritage by burning a giant effigy of a Wicker Man at sunset, to represent an offering to the God of The Sun, to ensure a bountiful harvest for the coming year.
