A celebration of the natural cycle of birth, growth and death.
The procession starts from the National Monument.
The drums beat as the procession, led by the May Queen and the Green Man, makes its way to its destination.
Depicting the awakening of the May Queen, whose fires chase away winter, the theatre performance is next.
Stripped of his winter guise, the Green Man is reborn as summer.
Loosely translated, Beltane means ‘bright fire’ and that’s what you’ll see when the bonfire is lit.
Drums, theatre, fire, pageantry – it’s an exciting experience.
