About Brilliant Beltane

A Brilliant Beltane Saturday 2nd – Tuesday 5th May

A special long weekend of family fun when we can all wish each other a Brilliant Beltane.

Turning our backs on the cheesiness and chocolates of an increasingly commercial Easter, we’re celebrating happier, simpler days when life was closer to nature, and ancient traditions marked the passage of the seasons.

There is a daily programme of lighthearted family activities that delight in the mysteries and wonders of a traditional springtime. Children can create masks that will change them into green boys and girls, with tickely mystical wands that have the power to surprise. Scribble down your secret hopes for the year to come, tie these with wool, ribbon or slices of fabric to decorate our clootie tree. Out in the farm, the animals will be in their springtime finery.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Brilliant Beltane are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
