Well, it’s coming up to that time of year, when it’s all dark and gloomy and cold, and it’s raining a lot, and, well, it’s 2016. And you might, under all those circumstances – especially that last one – be starting to feel as though the shine’s wearing off your day-to-day jollity and sparkliness.
What you need, dear reader, is a Right Good Midwinter Knees-Up to remind you that spring is just around the corner. Really. Earth only has to do another 188 million miles – even less by the time Yule comes around – and we’ll be welcoming the spring back.
While we wait, though, your friends at Chesterfield and Derbyshire Pagans will not be found wanting in the Midwinter Knees department, oh no they won’t.
(“Oh yes they will!”)
Oh NO, they WON’T. Now be said.
(“Boo! Hiss! Booooooo!”)
Bloody panto season.
Bring yourself along to Eyre Chapel on 17 December (2016), at 19:00 and enjoy frolics until midnight. There’ll be a ritual, along with music and drumming, even a spot of dancing if you’re feeling all rhythmically gyratory.
There’ll be a food share too, so consider bringing along a little something to throw into the mix if you can. (This isn’t a literal mix, by the way. It’s not like, bring sausage rolls and some iced buns and they’ll all get put in a blender or anything. That’d be odd.)
(Also, if you do bring stuff along, please do label whether it’s veggie-friendly or not.)
Also, also, also: if you dress up, you’ll have a chance to win tickets for the 2017 summer Lammas Camp. Worth a punt, I’d say.
