Beltane 2018

Beltane Fire Festival marks the changing seasons by bringing the ancient Celtic festival to a modern audience. For one special night, a huge cast of otherworldly creatures lead thousands of spectators on an unforgettable procession around Calton Hill. Through spectacular fiery displays and immersive storytelling, the Beltane performers show the May Queen transforming the Green Man from his wintry guise so they can rule together over the warmer months.
