Beltane Fire Society

In 2018, the Beltane Fire Society once again invite the world to Calton
Hill to see in one of Europe’s biggest May Day Eve celebrations. This
year sees the mantle of May Queen passed onto the 7th person within the
society to hold the role, so they hope to welcome as many people as
possible onto the hill to witness the start of their journey. Beltane
Fire Festival is a modern interpretation of ancient quarter day
celebrations presented through street theatre and community arts, which
will consist of a bonfire, costumed characters and the re-telling of
stories and traditions told on the hill by the society since 1988.
Beltane Fire Society is a charity run by passionate volunteers.
