Beltane at Bosavern.

On May Eve (Saturday 30th April) Bosavern Community Farm was delighted to host the 23rd annual St Just maypole dance, to celebrate the traditional festival of Beltane. More than 60 people came down to the farm, plus a troupe of folk musicians, with food and drink to share, and a lovely evening was had by all. The festivities took place in Standing Stone Field next to the ancient standing stone itself.

After the music and dancing, a fire was lit in the specially-dug fire-pit, and those daring enough leapt over the flames to bring good luck.

 We are already looking forward to next year's Beltane festivities!
