Beltane Fire Festival 2020
Beltane Fire Festival is back with its modern twist on ancient Celtic traditions.
With blazing pyrotechnics, immersive theatre, and elaborate costumes, we show Summer the warm welcome it deserves while celebrating the rituals and stories that continue to shape us.
For one special night, hundreds of otherworldly creatures will descend on Calton Hill to mark the turn of the wheel. When the drums start to thunder, the May Queen awakens and leads the Green Man and their followers on a transformative journey through the night. Only when the Green Man has shed his wintry guise can he take his rightful place by the May Queen and rule alongside her through the warmer months.
Witness Summer's ascendance on Thursday 30th April with a spectacular procession, interactive performances, and the traditional lighting of the Beltane bonfire.
