Celebrate the harvest of garden and orchard. At this time, we give thanks for generosity of the earth and, if we have been fortunate, in the knowledge that we will not lack as the weather grows cold. For thousands of years, people have  celebrated at this time of year as food arrived to sustain life. Join together to recognise our reaping and our sowing as we share words, chanting, music, silence, candle lighting. The celebration will end with feasting. Please arrive by 19.20.

At the equinox, also known as Mabon, summer becomes autumn and the nights balance the days. The dark half of the year begins, a time of drawing in. Join us to honour the rhythms of the earth and the rhythms within ourselves. We gather together to honour the cycles of nature.

People around the world mark the wheel of the year in different ways. We offer you an open Pagan ritual, open to everyone, of any beliefs or none. It is a time to reflect on the past summer and look ahead to what the autumn may bring.

NB: There will *not* be a labyrinth walk for this celebration.
