Celebrating Beltane – an online event

Join Embercombe founder Mac Macartney, poet and storyteller Tommy Crawford, and musicians Bethan Lloyd and Nigel Shaw for a special Beltane event, filled with ancient folktales, bardic incantations, and sweeping rides upon the wings of sound.

For many of our ancestors, the first of May was a magical day that marked the turning of the year and the beginning of Summer.

In 2021, as we prepare to emerge — like green shoots erupting from the dark soil — from what has been, for many, a deeply challenging and alchemical Winter period, we will gather together after dusk to celebrate this threshold moment, and walk hand-in-hand through the fires towards a new dawn.

Together, we will build an altar, filled with prayer-song and sculpted from words gathered from the underside of the moon — in praise of all the gifts we have uncovered in the fertile darkness these last months — before turning, hearts roaring, to face the onrushing light.

And when all is said and done, we will emerge, a blanket of song draped around our shoulders, a poem or two tucked under our tongues, and a fistful of stars to light the road ahead.
