Pagan Rites


An unusual event took place today in Nottingham. Hundreds of Pagans descended on the city for a march and festival celebrating their religion. They were certainly very colourful, but very peaceful as they walked through the city centre to the Arboretum, where the festival was being held. There were a number of stalls there, plenty of music, vegetarian food and story telling. I bought a mousemat with a fairy on it as a present for Gail, as she said that she needed a new one. I met up with a few of my Flickr friends and we listened to a couple of the bands; 3 Eyed Fox, a folk pop band and Cryptic Age, a goth prog rock group fronted by a very vivacious singer and keyboard player called Jenny Green. I took loads of photos, many of which will be appearing on my Flickr site. I can't resist showing you this photo of this lady with her pet dragon. He didn't say a lot, and must have given up smoking, as he never once breathed any fire!
