A Fairy Tale Weekend
If the harsh realities of life and the busy buzz of the city is getting you down, then why not escape to the wild woods of West Sussex over the May Bank Holiday weekend? Between the 10th-12th May, faeries will be flocking at Kingswood Stables for their big annual Magical Faerie Festival. There will be music, dancing, plenty of mead, and a series of workshops in their celtic round house, such as harp playing, drumming, learning circus skills, and fae crafts. You can also get messy wit body paint or discover what your future holds in a tarot reading.
Bands will include Inkubus Sukkubus , a gothic band reminiscent of Evanesence, the metal group, Pythia, and Serpentyne, a group that would have been popular with Medieval rocksters. Celtic style solo artists like Kim Thompsett and Jonathon Kershaw will also take to the stage.
There will also be special guest appearances by authors, who will be doing book signing at The Magical Times Stall. These include Kit Berry, who wrote the fantasy series, Stonewylde, and Karen L. French, who has written meditative and spiritual guides such as The Gateway Series.
Morris and belly dancers will vie for your attention, but will have tough competition when spectacles like Poi Passion's fire show take centre stage.
This magical festival will be one you want to remember, so why not buy some momentos from the market to mark the occasion. There will be a huge range of gifts to choose from, such as handcrafted instruments, jewellery, and leather bound books, handmade and upcycled clothes & costumes, as well as creative cakes and vegan food.
A weekend ticket is £60 for adults and £15 for kids. You can also by a one day ticket for £25 and £10 respectively.
