St Brigid – the patroness of women, poets, farmers and healers. St Brigid’s Day is celebrated on the 1st of February of each year. This feast day was one of the most important days of the year for Ireland’s rural ancestors. With its origins in the Celtic festival of Imbolc, it was a celebration of fertility and a new season of hope and growth. As such, Ireland’s rural ancestors marked the day with a festive meal and a host of customs, all aimed at securing St Brigid’s protection and promise of new life and abundance for the year ahead. St Brigid is celebrated around the world within Christian and Pagan community groups but in recent years she has been celebrated as a woman that is representative of strong, creative women everywhere.

Join us for a weekend of festivities including music, dance, song, poetry, story-telling, food, art, crafts and so much more!
