Lughnasadh (Loo-nah-sah) Fire & Fete

On Saturday 6 August as part of our summer programme, ‘The Berries’, we will be celebrating the beginning of harvest with fire, fun, and food at Forgan Arts Centre.

Did you know Lughnasadh, pronounced Loo-nah-sah, is a Celtic fire festival that would have been celebrated in Scotland historically and is named after the sun god Lugh?

It is said that Lugh was a skilled craftsperson and founded the first Olympic Games. Therefore, Forgan Arts Centre’s Lughnasadh will have arts and crafts activities alongside some classic games!

Sunshine Kitchen will be on site with food and refreshments and there’s a bar purchasing Lugh’s favourite drink, beer! Soft drinks, tea and coffee also available.

Raku Firing, 1-7pm: purchase a piece of pottery created by Forgan’s own ceramics students to decorate and fire in the raku kiln.

Forgan Games, 1pm-6pm: Classic three-legged race, egg and spoon, and relay make for (friendly) competition with the highest scoring person or team crowned the Lughnasadh Champion.

Arts and crafts, 1-6pm: from making corn dollies to designing your own Lughnasadh headpiece or flower crown, there will be activities for all ages.

Lugh’s Fire, 6pm: Thanks to the Leng Growers and volunteers, we have plenty of twigs and branches to build a bonfire on which we’ll be baking our own bread.

The bar will sell beer, wine, and cider from local independent suppliers.

Please book your free tickets here, so that we know how many to expect!
