The Beltane Celebrations at Glastonbury are a modern interpretation of the ancient Celtic pagan fertility rite of spring, and where better to celebrate such an event? There are different groups who organise different events around the date.
This begins with celebrations on the night of 30th April into May 1st every year regardless of what day of the week the date falls upon: on April 30th there’s a Community Night event at the Assembly Rooms and on 1st May the sacred waters are blessed at the White Spring followed by the raising of a maypole at Bushey Combe with dancing and more music.
A separate event is the Dragon Celebrations which usually take place on a weekend near May 1st (usually the early May Bank Holiday weekend). The Dragons procession starts with street performances, singing, dancing and music at the Market Cross, then moves along the High Street with Chinese dragons, green men and an array of costumed folk.
