Where:

On the longest day of the year, come together in bringing honour to the Sun, who inspires us and gives us life. We will raise a sunwheel into the sky, decorated with ribbons and beads, offering beauty for illumination.

We bring offering also to Manannan mac Lir, who aids us all year by serving as Gatekeeper and teaching us the liminal ways of magic. On this day, we ask his foster-son Lugh to guard the gates, that Manannan be welcomed as an honoured guest. Yellow flowers and long grasses are traditional offerings at this time.

WHERE IS IT?

At the end of Country Lane, enter the main gate. Our site is to the left over the bridge, and to the left again.
