Imbolc: Celtic Spring Festival

Kind of Event
United Kingdom

Join us for the afternoon to celebrate the end of winter! Hosted by Jonathon Huet, from Walk With Trees, the afternoon’s entertainment will include storytelling, poetry, and singing, all in the atmospheric setting of our great Iron Age Roundhouse.

Imbolc is an ancient Celtic or Gaelic festival also known as St Brigid's day, marking the beginning of spring. It was traditionally celebrated at the start of February, halfway between the winter solstice and spring equinox.

This event will include Celtic storytelling and an early spring ritual believed to invoke the protection of Brigid - the Celtic goddess of inspiration -for the year ahead, as well as honoring the sacred land around us as it wakes from winter slumber. 

We will learn about the origins of the festival and experience Celtic poetry, prose and drumming which will enable us to feel uplifted and connected as a community for the coming year.
