Samhain: Bonfire Night
Sorry you are too late, this event has been and gone!
Join Two of Cups at Forgan Arts Centre to celebrate Samhain, the Celtic New Year Festival that has inspired modern-day Halloween, and Bonfire Night.
About Samhain: Bonfire Night
As you might find yourself lamenting the end of summer, turn that frown upside down by celebrating the bountiful summer harvests, honouring our ancestors, and warming up around a big ol’ fire.
The evening will be punctuated by performances of song, dance, and storytelling. There will be opportunities to learn about the traditional rituals of Samhain including making your own Celtic smudge stick with foraged herbs, painting a lantern to take home, and providing offerings to your ancestors.
The Forgan grounds will be festively-decorated as we invite you to step through a magical portal, peep in the windows of a Haunted Cottage and meander through the spooky woodland path.
The evening will take place both inside and outside, so make sure to wrap up warm. Participants should prepare for the weather with appropriate clothing. There will be food available to purchase as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic hot and cold drinks served at the bar.
This event is family friendly but children should be supervised by an adult with particular care taken around the fire.
Tickets are Pay What You Can. We aim to create an accessible event for all people. If there’s anything you think we need to know about your access requirements, you can tell us when booking your ticket. We will ensure there is seating available throughout the venue and grounds.
Where possible we will update our listings to notify of cancelled, postponed and rescheduled events, however we STRONGLY ADVISE that you check with the venue/organiser in the first instance for updates.
