With the first stirrings of spring, it’s time to start the drum roll for pagan festivals! There are lots of weekend-long – and longer – magical events taking place this spring, summer and autumn. Here’s a list of some of them in the UK or online. If you book early you can often get cheaper tickets, or ensure your place before they sell out! Oh and if you know about a festival you’d like added, please let me know in a comment!
