Beltane at Thornborough Henge Update

Hi folks,

Here's the latest on Beltane at Thornborough Henge 2006.

Sunday 30th April, 12pm onwards, Thornborough Henge, near Ripon, North Yorkshire.

Everyone welcome, admission FREE!

Visit the event website:


Camping is available for the entire weekend for £3 a night. Please get in touch soon if you would like details and directions.


If you want to set up a stall to sell your wares or provide refreshments, please get in touch and let us know that you are coming. Stall-holders can keep all the money they make, all we ask is that they do something to contribute to the ambience of the festival (We'll leave he details up to you).

Do your own thing!

After the main ceremony, which we will be performing to celebrate Beltane, we are encouraging as many people as possible to perform their own rituals and ceremonies. There is plenty of room in the Henge for everyone who wants to, to celebrate the coming of summer in accordance with their own beliefs.

Get involved:

The success of an FREE event like this depends on the involvement as many people as possible. We are still looking for people to participate in the main ceremony and help with other aspects of running the event. Musicians, performers, jugglers, drummers, didgeridoo players etc., your contributions would be especially welcome!

Either email us:

Thanks for your time and hopefully see you soon.

Beltane Blessings!
