Ahead of Edinburgh’s summery fire festival, Beltane Fire Festival 2019, a vibrant troupe of storytellers, singers, and game masters are organising a day of play that brings the magic of Beltane alive for families.

We’ll mark Summer’s return with a cosy day of stories, music, crafts, face painting, and DRUMS. A host of otherworldly characters will lead the activities and embody the sunny spirit of Beltane.

This is a great day for nature-loving and creative families looking for a unique day out celebrating an alternative May Day.

And if your kids are a bit small for the main festival, this is a perfect opportunity to experience the Celtic traditions that Beltane Fire Society keeps alive in a smaller and easier way.

How much are tickets?

Tickets are £5 and can be bought from the Scottish Storytelling Centre.
