Last chance to get your tickets for the Wickerman Gathering @ Navan Centre & Fort

The Navan Centre & Fort’s annual celebration of the ancient Celtic sun god Lugh takes place on Saturday August 5 from 6pm.

The spectacular Wickerman Gathering celebrates with music from the fabulous HatchJaw, the amazing Trad Folk Experience and the outstanding Fireside Folk along with performances from the Armagh Rhymers. The ever-popular ceili dancing will get your feet tapping, don’t worry about not knowing the steps – they will even teach you a few moves!

Visit the encampment to see how the Celts would have prepared for the burning of the Wickerman. See the traditions of the time and get a greater understanding of the customs associated with this festival such as the technique of Casting of the Fews!

Take part in some wellness meditation, see birds of prey, enjoy some Henna & traditional face-painting and be amazed by the fire dancers! You can also browse crafts stalls packed full of unusual crafts with a Celtic theme.

Of course the Wickerman will be towering above the audience, ready for the fire ceremony.

NB Booking in advance essential on www.armagh.co.uk/wickerman No tickets are available on the evening.
