We’ll have the usual combination of ritual, with sacred shamanic space, some chant & Drumming, and magical work of balancing the inner Dark & Light.. as day and night become equal at this time. A ritual fire will be carefully lit for this ceremony, and we’ll have home made bread & wine to share..
All are welcome.. pagans, non-pagans, friends.. to participate in the ceremony and/or the social afterwards.
Remember to bring a bottle of wine, mead and some food to share at the Feast.
Date: Saturday 20th September 2014.
Time: 4pm meetup at Coombe Lane Tram stop.
Please see our website http://www.Hern-Tribe.org for guidelines on what to bring, how to be prepared for outdoor rituals in woodlands, and some health & safety instructions.
Please wear sensible outdoor cloths…waterproof is better..and good shoes to walk in slippery or muddy surface.
We will have a ritual fire…and if you stay near it…your cloths will smell of smoke. So don’t wear anything that’s going to be ruined by smoke..!!

Celebrating the Three Druidic Freedoms: of Thought; of Speech; & of Association Called for by John Tollund in 1716, & assembled by Iolo Morgannwg in 1792.
If you’re coming by tube to Chalk Farm,turn RIGHT on leaving the station & cross Adelaide Rd to get to Regents Park Rd into which you turn RIGHT (admiring the Banksy stencil graffiti of a uniformed maid sweeping dust under a wall) & go uphill to the cycle/pedestrian only bridge over a railway & turn LEFT over it.
Confronted by 3 roads take the middle one (still R P Rd) & continue past the trendy shops & coffee-houses full of minor celebrities as it curves very slightly to the left, until you reach the Queen’s Head pub on the corner opposite the gate into Primrose Hill.
Enter the Park thro’ this gate & take the steepest path in front of you to the top of the hill where you will find a viewing platform overlooking most of the old City of London to the South & East, & a Memorial to Iolo Morganwg.
To the WEST & just below the brow of the hill you will see a small copse of hawthorn trees which is where we meet. Do please come & join us & make yourself known.
And remember, we’ll be meeting up in the pub afterwards! :-)
Share and enjoy and remember – Please do note the caveat covering photography listed in our “about” section describing the LADS meetings:
