Event Details

Earth Festival | Chalice Well Wheel of the Year | First Stirring (Meditation)

Born from winter dreaming, life stirs and the first tender shoots emerge from the earth. As the wheel turns, we feel the promise of spring and the dawning of a new beginning.

Free Admission to the Gardens between 10 am and 12 noon

(Normal Admission applies from 12 noon - Companions FREE)

This is the first of our 8 Wheel of the Year celebrations which mark the cycle of nature.

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.

Participants in the White Spring ceremony will be let in through the gate in Wellhouse Lane at 11.20 pm, as in previous years.

Refreshments will be available until 1.30 pm.

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.
