Press and Media

Each year, the Beltane Fire Society creates unique happenings, events that attract the attention of journalists and media from across the world, from bloggers to headline news reporters.

We are keen to work closely with the media to help them cover our events as much as we can, and in recent years we’ve worked with representatives from the BBC, STV, The Times and Getty Images, as well as The Scotsman, The Herald and Edinburgh Evening News.

Our next event will be the Samhuinn Fire Festival, which will take place on Wednesday 31st October 2018.
