COME AWAY WITH THE FAERIES
to magical FEATHERSTONE CASTLE
for the Ostara gathering
March 19th– 26th 2019
Gather for faerie frolics with queers of all genders for awakening, light and laughter as we gather to celebrate Ostara, a time of new growth, healing and transformation. While the earth lies quiet just before the Spring bursts into blossom, this is a very special opportunity in a unique venue to reflect, recharge, reconnect and commune with each other and nature.
Featherstone Castle lies in the stunning Northumberland countryside. The Castle is vast and atmospheric with real fires, cosy rooms for heart circles, a magnificent ballroom for dancing, mysterious nooks and crannies, a drag space and an excellent kitchen. Featherstone Castle is near to Hadrian’s Wall and close to Haltwhistle, centre of the sacred Isle of Albion,
