Right, is anybody up for sorting out and getting together for a beltane fire festival? I've got no ideas for location, but somewhere a reasonable sized bonfire could be lit would be cool, to do some Fire Twirling and jumping the bonfire (a good old pagan tradition!) any takers?------------------Trance the sacred spiral dance.Love and LightSpiral

Right, beltane is a pagan celebration of life, and the origins of may day. The ancient celts used to drive cattle between two burning fires to cleanse them for the year ahead. It is also one of my customs to build a F*****g great fire, get a bit pissed and leap over it, so, the time would be sunset on the last day of april. the p[lan would be to spin, leap fires, and then retire for some hedonistic binges

I'm always up for a Poi meet - and that sounds like a damn fine reason. M:-)~

We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold.

where abouts @ suprise view?secret garden must be off the list being in a forest.. keyhole cave would be a nice venue, sheltered and kinda open and you can climb the cliff if the coppers role up, i remember curfew's fifth bday at the secret garden and the coppers raiding it. no where to hide. oh and make sure it isnt giant ant season out there cos they is nasty on acid! i remember ant hils about a meter high and ants every where

Aye, I was drumming at the Beltane festival in Edinburgh last year. If you do live in the UK, you'd be stupid not to make your way up to Scotland for that one night to welcome in new summer season. There's such a good vibe up on Carlton Hill, great organic beats, body paint, giant puppets, fire twirlers and a lot of happy people. Walking through the streets of Edinburgh voices yell 'Happy Beltane'all night, and ofcourse there's nothing like rolling in the morning dew when the sun begins to rise. Unfortunately, this year, I'll be wishing all those in Edinburgh a very, merry, Beltane from Australia. Cheers !

THE BELTANE FIRE FESTIVAL IS...In Edinburgh the first weekend in May. I live in Edinburgh just underneath Carlton Hill where the festival takes place. I also happen to have just made friends with the person that organises the festival - which is one big night of carnage by the way!! As soon as I know any more details I will post them, however email me if you have any questions about it. Otherwise go too www.beltane.com and check out their website. Take care guys, Dibs xxx
