Ceremonies

As a group we meet up to mark all eight festivals of the Wheel of the Year. These are open to anyone with a genuine and open minded interest in what we are doing.

We normally meet on the Sunday closest to the date of the actual festival. We  publish final details of dates in our Yahoo and Facebook groups and on this page. We also publish our ritual scripts on the Yahoo group for you to read in advance.

Our outdoor ceremonies are held in Pollok Country Park . We usually all gather together at the end of the Burrell Museum Car Park at 12.45 to 13.15hrs. If you're not sure where to go - look for colourful group of interesting looking people! From there we make our way to the Ritual site at the ancient earthworks in the North Wood. For those with reduced mobility you can go to the ritual site directly from the North Lodge.

We are a baby and child friendly group, all we ask is you keep your little ones under reasonable control. Join us for a walk through the woods, a ceremony, walk back and then to the cafe of the Burrell Museum for a tea/coffee/chocolate and a nice chat.

If you have mobility issues please contact the group in advance of attendance as the location usually used involves a bit of walking with the last short section on rough ground under beech trees.

Our next ceremony is for the Spring Equinox - on Sunday 23 March 2014
