Druid Camp 15th to 19th August 2018

 

“A Fire in My Head” – living in the AWEN

Join with us as we explore creativity, in every unique way it is manifest, in a woodland glade near the sacred River Severn. The fires that burn within us lead us each in different directions – to music, storytelling, performance and dance, to activism, to healing and holding, in service to the gods, our world and all life. Here we will come together, to share, to learn, to inspire… to grow. A multitude of offerings and experiences set within the countryside under the summer sun.

The term “a fire in the head” has long been associated with the spurring spark of creativity that comes with immersing ones self in the Awen. It pulses within the story-song-poem by William Butler Yeats, called the Song of Wandering Aengus. What will the Awen bring to you, if once you let it inside…

A new site, a new date. A community that has built itself over nearly two decades. Supported by a nurturing infrastructure including on site cafe, showers and toilets. Live entertainment to be announced.

Near Westbury on Severn. August 15th to 19th.

Mad Magdalen are a regular joy at Druid Camps. Whether on the main stage, around a camp fire, or plugged into a sun, wind or pedal powered amp or two, Mad Magdalen offer earthy folk for earthy folk. Mad Magdalen features artists with a solid back ground in musical performance. Alison and Graeme are Devil’s Elbow – known for their traditional songs and tunes; Claire sings with the Andover Loft Singers, and Paul is known for his satire.
