2022 Events

Celtic Art by Welsh Artist Jen Delyth www.celticartstudio.com

All ceremonies are planned in outdoor settings. Occasionally, a potluck meal may follow. Please see our Health and Safety page for guidelines on gatherings.

Visitors may attend our moots and public ceremonies; please email us for details of the location. A moot is a meeting of grove members to perform a group practice, or just to have social time. Moots are often online, as it seems more convenient for many people's schedules. We welcome input on themes or activities to do during moots!

Private ceremonies may be attended only by people who've met with us at any three public events.

“It is at this time that the Druids hold their most complex ceremony. Starting at midnight on the eve of the Solstice, a vigil is held through the night – seated around the Solstice fire. The night is over in a matter of hours, and as light breaks, the Dawn Ceremony marks the time of the sun’s rising on this his most powerful day.”
