Summer Solstice Weekend

Join us for our mid-summer gathering. This summer we are hosting the magnificent Tidal Tales with their child friendly show Stars and Sails. Be sure to book for this bonus event.

Join us in the Magpie wheel, our stone circle, as we once again open the eye of the dragon at this potent time of the summer solstice.
