Important changes for 2014: Please read..

Camping is now by permit only

As the number of people camping at Beltane at Thornborough has now reached the capacity of the site we regret that it will no longer be possible to just turn up 'on spec' and obtain a camping pitch without a confirmed booking.

If you wish to camp at the event then you MUST obtain a camping permit in advance.

We regret to announce that all camping permits have now been allocated.

Stall space is now fully booked.

As with camping, pitches for stalls must now be booked in advance. If you wish to be sent an application form for having a stall then please contact us ASAP using the form opposite.

The main event on Sunday is still FREE entry

The Beltane ceremony and mystery play will take place on Sunday May 4th starting at 12 noon in the central Henge at Thornborough.

Entry to day visitors is still completely FREE of charge. There is no need to book anything in advance you can just turn up on the day.

Day visitors can give voluntary donations to help meet the running costs of the event. Any surplus money that we collect will be donated to a good cause in the local area.

Guidance for ALL visitors

Important: Ongoing restoration work to the Henge by English Heritage means that it is NOT currently permitted for anyone to walk on to or over the Henge banks at anytime.

Dogs are welcome but must be under control and kept off the Henge banks at all times.

We encourage everyone who attends the event to dress up in their most lavish festival outfits and costumes themed upon whatever they consider to be most inspiring.
