HASFEST is a yearly pagan festival, held free of charge in Hasland, Chesterfield around the Beltane period. The first Hasfest was held in 2009, and regular features include:
- Overnight camping (toilet facilities during pub opening hours)
- Stalls (goods and services and pagan-esque knick-knacks)
- Workshops (outside and inside our shiny marquee tent)
- Burning Man
- Labyrinth and Blessing Tree
- Nearby source of beer and chips 🙂
Also the company of a multitude of naturey types of different flavours, which, let’s face it, is the big selling point.
You can leave your booking enquiry comments below: we’ll pick them up and send them onwards 🙂 Alternatively you can send us an e-mail to the contact us address, or make arrangements in person at a moot or gathering between now and May.
Make a space in your diaries for the fourth Hasfest in 2012: an independent free festival celebrating all paths pagan for a wonderfully packed three days. By previous years, this year will probably have a great grass labyrinth for Bob’s fabulous guided labyrinth dance, stalls and workshops, drumming, dancing, music and the nearly world famous Burning Man as the sun goes down. Well, practically world famous – OK, maybe we’ve got a few years to go yet. The price of this fantastic weekend of pagan pageantry is nothing, no cost for camping, though space is limited and neighbours can end up rather cosy… the workshops and talks are free to attend, though you’ll probably have to pay for the shiny things on the stalls. Just sayin’.
If you want to offer a workshop or talk on your very own special subject, just nudge Gwen, or leave a message here and we’ll pass it on. Sharing knowledge, skills or information is very welcome at Hasfest and indeed all our moots and festivals, so if you’ve got a topic you know lots about and want to share your enthusiasm, please get in touch.
Likewise if you’d like to run a stall, or sell a service such as reading cards, reiki or aura healing, get in touch and we’ll advertise you beforehand, and make sure you have enough space to do your thing on the day.
The dates for 2012 are *drum roll* 18-20th May 2012. At the New Inn Pub, Mansfield Road, Chesterfield. So book them out in your diaries now, get in touch if you want to camp out, run a workshop or stall, and we’ll see you there 🙂
