Posted:I haven't been to this for a few years either. I remember the lovely warm vibe, and that delicious bonfire. I considered going this year but remembered, I have two parties to go to that night already. Hmmm maybe I could go to Northey Street early. I'm sure they'll light the fire pretty early, then I can just take that warmth with me!

Posted:Ry.. no need to do that sweetie... I was just playin smile
If you missed this thread others could too & then they won't know and might miss it and... frown

Jai.. It'll come around again next year, so don't be too sad.. always a weekend either side of the solstice which is around 21st June.. so mark it in your diary now for next year?

Jen.. maybe we can do shifts..? I can't make it early cause we have a gig, but am hoping to go afterwards if it isn't too late...
that northey street bonfire is the *yummiest* one I know..

Posted:OK so this is me *bumping* an old thread rather than make a new one * pats self on head and hopes peopledon;t get all mixed up about the dates*

This is 2007 OK and the Northey St City Farm Winter Solstice party is on Sat 23rd June.

I am looking for 2-4 spinners to help with the ritual lighting of the bonfire and have a bit of a play.

Lots of people who would usually be involved are out of town doofing/camping that weekend so I would really appreciate some new faces stepping up!

Doesn't need fabulous skills.. most of it is more ceremonial than performance style. We have long torches and assorted nice things to play with as well as anything you bring.
PM me or leave a note here...
Cheers!
Gabe
