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:Yeah well, you're the one that told me magic ross was leading firepoint! That turned out to be slightly incorrect.

I will probably have no time later on, plus I might get bored of it. But it'll be fun to talk snizzle with steve and fucknipple. It'll be worth on for the stupid antics we'll get up to I reckon.

Posted:We were actually thinking about burning something and giving you the ashes, but thought that might be a bit disrespectful. I'll see if I can get a little toy parrot, it could be tied to your actual present biggrin

Scorched feathers would probably smell like my hair on any Monday night, just a little more extreme. And PETA might try and stop next year's Beltane if we burn birds...

And I can't YARRRRR anymore because my voice has gone (!)
