The Burning Man is back!

The opening ceremony takes it's roots from the old West Country cider tradition of awakening the "cider spirits" in a traditional pagan fire ceremony.

The ancient rituals lead up to the grand finale - the Burning of the Wicker Man which is symbolic of releasing of patterns of behaviour which no longer serve us.

The opening ceremony is a chance for all to come together to collectively usher in good intentions.
