the old English for ‘Loaf Mass’,
a celebration of the Earth’s bounty, traditionally held at the time of cutting the first corn crop. Lammas is also known as Lughnasadh, a name derived from that of the Celtic Sun God, Lugh. It is one of the main festivals now

collection taken at the festival. Our thanks go to all the performers and volunteers who freely give their time, hard work and expertise, making the festival a fun, peaceful and enjoyable weekend.
