Spreading joy, fun, and games with the Fairfaw

The power of play, love and joy is a strong one, one that offers liberation but is often forgotten far too early in life. At Beltane Fire Festival, the Fairfaw return to that state of unbridled joy, embodying a time of rebirth, vitality, and growing strength.

The Fairfaw (Scots for a blessing or wishing good fortune on someone) will do the vital work of spreading love. They exist to merge boundaries, breaking the border between the spiritual world and our witnesses and encouraging all to overcome personal barriers. This sort of inward freedom takes courage, and the Fairfaw will hold space for all to rise to the challenge. At a time of renewal, they encourage us to shine as our authentic selves.

Our festival embraces the new with a youthful vigour, and the Fairfaw upholds that mindset by exploring joyful abandon. They are a moving carnival, freely roaming the Hill and filling empty spaces with colour, play, dance, and music. They will spread joy through the games they play, the music they strum, and the dances they dance, revelling in the playfulness and ecstasy of improvised rhythms and ritual movement.
