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.

There are Green Men, Morris Dancers, Druids, May Poles and Dragons.  If you have never been to a Beltane Celebration in Glastonbury it is worth joining the thousands of people who come every year to celebrate the end of winter.

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?
