Beltane or May Day Celebrations take place in Glastonbury on the first weekend of May every year. It is a pagan tradition to celebrate the arrival of spring.
The word Beltane means ‘bright fire’ and is one of the most important rituals that happens on or around May 1st. The date is half way between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice.
For details of all the Beltane Celebrations that take place over the weekend visit Glastonbury Online
For me the best part of May Day is heading up Glastonbury Tor for Sunrise. Who fancies joining us, we will be leaving bright and early, sunrise is at 5:44am.
We have some availability for a stay over the weekend in our cottages or glamping, visit our Special Offers Page to book direct.
Our dog friendly Farm Shop and Café is open 8:30am- 4pm every day. Talk a stroll back down from the Tor after the morning Beltane celebrations and enjoy a delicious breakfast or coffee and cake.
Or if you would like to enjoy a quiet break why not book in for a treatment at our lovely Spa here at Middlewick.
