On 29th April 2017 we’ll be celebrating the onset of Spring in true pagan fashion – there’ll be feasting and fun all day, with special beer flavoured with foraged woodruff (a traditional May delicacy in Germanic cultures). We’ll have a visit from the mythical Green Man (the personification of greenery returning to the fields and forests), and, finally, taking California’s burning man festival back to its English historical roots, the ceremonial burning of a wicker man. Yes, really.
There’ll also be music from The Princes in the Tower, our resident medieval troubadors.
Midday – 6pm: Feasting and fun
6pm: Princes in the Tower play first set of medieval tunes.
8pm: The lighting of the wicker man, evocatively accompanied by more music from the Princes.
