A perfect ball for all hollows eve

A night when the witches fly high on there broom sticks and all manner of folk come out to play, you see them hand in hand laughing with such delight, they finery is clear for all to see as they make there way to to the misty hall in Avalon...... Now what could i be talking about?...... The Samhian Faery Ball!, the new annual event to take place in Glastonbury, I've mention before how this place is steeped in such magical and mystical history, so it makes perfect sense for a faery ball to be held here, after all the Tor is home to Gwyn ap Nudd who was first Lord of the Underworld, and later King of the fairies, as well as it being the final resting place for King Aruther who was brought here by Morgan le Fay ( a sorcress).

So whats in store for this most magical of nights (and weekend)? Well for started theres not one but two faery balls!
The 1st being for the younger pixies who can't always attend the festivities due to being too little or there tucked away dreaming peacefully.

"The debut Avalon Children’s Faery Ball featuring Sparkle the Fairy & friends! The Children’s Faery Ball will take place in the small hall while the Faery Fayre takes place in the main hall, so parents can enjoy the fayre whilst their children are at the Faery Ball!" Tickets £5 

"The Avalon  Faery Fayre is a FREE event which takes place on the Samhain/Halloween weekend of the 29th and 30th October at Glastonbury Town Hall. Doors open from 10.30am until 5pm on Saturday and from 11am until 5pm on Sunday! entry is FREE! There will be lots of stalls featuring some of the most amazing faery art by some of the worlds leading artists. Jasmine Becket-Groffith will be appearing at this event exclusively for the first time in the UK and will be unveiling art painted especially for this event!  Jasmine’s site: We also welcome UK artists, Josephine Wall and Linda Ravenscroft, Ed Org and many many more amazing artists"
"29th October Celebrate Samhain with the faeries at the Faery Ball. Come dressed in your finest faery finery!
