About Hearth Fire – Digital Samhuinn Fire Festival

Saturday 31 October from 7PM (end time TBC)
Watch on Facebook Live, IGTV & YouTube

Links will be posted to the Facebook Live broadcast and our YouTube stream here closer to the festival date.

THE STORY SO FAR…
When the Summer King first emerged from his slumber, he meant to celebrate the start of his reign with a magnificent feast – but nobody came. Now, too soon for his liking, he must draw his short season to a close and pass the mantle to the Winter King.

Sensing his reluctance, the mysterious crone goddess known as the Cailleach arrives. Under her watchful gaze, the turn of the year’s wheel must be preserved.

But not everything has to be gloomy. The Winter King is keen to remind us of the good things about Winter – the cosy hearths, the hot chocolates and the fireside stories. We’ve kept the fires lit through the dark months before, and we can do so again.
