The Beltane Fire Festival is held every year during the night of 30th April on Calton Hill in Edinburgh. An audience of around 15 thousand people come to share the two hour procession and wild after-events. Justifiably famous for its intensity and colour, the event has become a much-loved feature of the Edinburgh calendar since it was first organised in the mid 1980s.



so who's all gonna be there??

Posted:the beltane site hasnt been upodated since last year which was unfortunatly the year that beltane didnt go ahead on calton hill due to edinburgh council wankers messing the society around and making them miss vital grant deadlines, beltane costs around 15,000 to put on and last year they didnt have hardly any of that to put on the event.
as the site hasnt been updated since then, who knows if this years event will happen, im sure bluecat could shed some light on this one as the beltane office is also the te POOKa office.

beltane did actually happen last year but only to performers and was done privately out of edinburgh with no spectators.

In giving love there is an equal grace.
Nor need one seek the aura in the face,
As love unveils the beauty of all things."

Posted:beltane

don't know if its up to date, but it'll have the important details.

incidentally, i plan to be hosting edinburgh's first international Poi in the Park that weekend, as we already have a pretty dubious bunch heading north for beltane(co-lemon, ppp, BB, plus all the edinburgh regulars and hopefull a bunch of you lot, cause beltane is a must on my calendar and i'd like everyone to see why....)

anyway.

it'll get its own thread when prop'ly organised.

Posted:Yes! I particularly enjoyed the medical terms for pneumonia and ARDS. Plus the x-ray was quite fun, but I still think kill bill vol 2 was more graphic.

I can't believe I didn't realise you was giving it to us when you mentioned it on hop! (Though that still could have been another group...?)

Andy is a hard taskmaster, but ultimately a damn useful guy for his extensive experience in 'how not to burn yourself and keep the audience safe.'
