Beltane Fire Festival 2019

With its origins in a pre-Christian Scottish festival, the spectacular Beltane Fire Festival marks the arrival of the summer.

The festival takes place on Calton Hill, following a procession, which starts at the National Monument and wends its way anti-clockwise meeting various groups along the way. The hugely dramatic procession is driven by the beat of drums which push it onwards towards summer.

The various groups either help or hinder the procession’s progress towards the Green Man’s fate and the May Queen’s destiny.

The participants then gather for the home comforts of warmth, food and drink which are provided to the tired and often very cold performers and crew.

Date: 30 April 2019
