Wheel of the Year Festival - Spring Equinox
The sun rises due east and sets due west, there is equal day and equal night. The earth greens, the sap rises and the leaves burst their buds in verdant response. This is a time of awakening, experiencing life with youthful vigour and childish delight.
12.00 - 12.30
FREE ADMISSION to the gardens between 10am & 12pm
Refreshments on sale between 10am and 1:30pm
We will be gathering at the Well Head at 12pm for celebration and meditation until 12:30.
At 12:30 we invite you to join us around the fire on the Lower Lawn for informal ’conversation’. We hope this will be an opportunity for people to share ideas, thoughts and beliefs, and a chance to increase connection through understanding.
Please feel free to join us for all or any part of the celebration.
Chalice Well is a World Peace Garden. A place of peace and tranquility for those of all faiths and none. These festivals are grounded in common principles; welcome, stillness, silence, reflection, grace, communion, community, relationship, celebration, gratitude and blessing. That people gather together, not in a formalised building or structure of worship, but in a beautiful garden, allows a shared acknowledgement of the sacred and divine that transcends borders and differences.
