I had to go look for my old vinyl collection, I was that excited when Mark told me… I remember many a happy day bouncing along to Here & Now, either at Bristol gigs or at home (volume 11 of course). So you’ll know this is going to be great!
Here and Now are an offshoot of Planet Gong and all the family of bands that Gong engendered. If you’re Facebooked, you can find some of their stuff here.
Full details of when they’ll be playing will appear here soon. More bands news too, soon.
Druid Camp 2018 tickets are now on sale… and if you buy before the winter solstice there’s an amazing 20% off the adult ticket prices! And between solstice and the end of January there’s still 10% off.
Buy them in the early New Year and get a great deal, but buy them now and get a fantastic one!
Just click this clicky.
Druid Camp has, after nearly twenty years, become quite a community. There is a coherence to the annual gathering that is more than one might expect from attending an event. We’ve had folk meet, and get married, and make babies, all in this space. We’ve honoured the passing of members, and welcomed new ones.
So, when a significant number of folk come to us and say, “the date set for this year’s camp is simply not feasible for us, sorry”, we listen. Mark Graham has gone back and negotiated a change of dates, so that Camp can happen for more people, who may otherwise have been tied to the school year.
The Druid Camp dates for 2018 are 25th to 29th July. You’re welcome.
And an aside, it will be a Full Moon on Friday the 27th, just before half past nine in the evening…
Druid Camp 2018 will run from Wednesday 25th July through to Sunday 29th July 2018
please note these dates have changed since this post was published and the current dates shown are correct!
Now you know, mark it in your diaries. Tickets won’t be on sale quite yet and neither is the full camp theme developed. Some things are known and some things hang yet in quantum fields of uncertainty. But one thing’s for sure.
It’s gonna be great!
Samhain is passed, and winter approaches. The evenings come on faster, but due to our oddities with the clock we still wake to the dawn sunrise. All is slowing, the darkness holds a tighter grip on all the life in and around us. The ancestors are still close behind us. It’s still 2017…
But we’re already working on Druid Camp 2018! The web site has been migrated to a faster server dedicated to running WordPress. The old 2017 site is slowly dismantling, and the new 2018 theme should be up early in the New Year.
I’m thoroughly chuffed to be able to share Syre Byrd’s review of last year’s excellent Druid Camp as well as a short video I took of the closing chant that finale’d the Saturday whole-camp ritual. You can discuss these perhaps in the Rainbow Druid Camp Facebook group.
Have a splendid Yule, folks. See you in a field on a hill by a river.
