Join Celtic scholar Jhenah Telyndru and Druid Chief Kristoffer Hughes on a journey to discover Wales' most peculiar tradition - the Mari Lwyd. This Winter mumming celebration is currently enjoying a resurgence in both popular and Pagan culture, involving bardic battles, revelry, drinking and the darkly beautiful figure of the Mari, with her horse-skull head, white shroud, bells and ribbons. This immersive experience both presentation and deep ritual will draw from traditional Welsh customs, reclaimed Druidic and Brythonic Pagan ceremonies. Come peer into the face of the Mari and be transformed
