In pictures – The faces of Beltane Fire Festival

The veil between our world and the next grows thin on the night of Beltane Fire Festival, and there’s a whole host of new and mysterious characters for you to meet. To help you recognise some of these visitors from the other realm, we’ve put together this visual guide for you.

To get to know the story we tell at Beltane this year, have a read through our second “In pictures” post.
