A Huge Thank You!

A huge ‘Thank You!’ to everyone who helped to make last weekend in Glastonbury (all four days of it!) such an outstanding success. Everyone was amazing, and if you were there, what you experienced was an example of an incredible amount of team-work – from the teams who organised tickets, security, the music, the buffet, the fringe events, the rituals, and so on. And some individual heroism too – from Hawkie who made litres of Nuinn’s Dragonsbreath Mead for 400 thirsty druids, for example!

Still reeling from it and off to Germany soon, so no time for more comment, but you can read blog accounts from others here: http://setantii.wordpress.com/

And Damh will be putting up recordings over the coming months and Kevin Redpath is making a film of it, though that will take a while to be edited.

And news that 500 trees will be planted to celebrate the anniversary here (for only £5 you can make that 501!)
