About the event

The flowers are blooming, the herbs are stinking, the sun has got their hat on… that’s right summer has arrived! On June 21st that magical ole solstice happens again - it’s a celebration of the longest day and the shortest night. After the 21st the nights will slowly start to lengthen - so Summer Solstice is a good excuse to gather with friends, eat, drink, be merry, and make some magic!

Come and celebrate with Coven Oven! On Wednesday 21st June we will be holding a Summer Solstice ritual workshop from 8pm till the dark sets in (10pm). We’ll share our knowledge about this ancient festival, learn about (and ingest) a magic seasonal herb, do some gentle summer rituals and learn to make a special solstice item for you to take home! There’ll be a delicious summer dessert to fuel you through the evening and a magical drink (non-alcoholic) to whet the ole whistle as well.

All food and drink provided will be vegan and gluten-free. Please note this is not a dinner - we will only be providing a snack and a drink so make sure you have your tea before coming!

We are really excited to be hosting this at Grow Wilder, whose beautiful six acre site demonstrates the value of nature for wellbeing, wildlife and food growing. The event will be largely undercover but we will also be roaming the site to take in summer’s bounties.


This event is happening at Grow Wilder, we will be in ‘The Pod’, a converted polytunnel, which is undercover and has a small step down at the door. The paths around the site are varied, some paved, some woodchip. There is disabled parking at the site - please let us know if you would like us to reserve you a space. There is an accessible toilet within 30 metres of the Pod. We will be sitting still for a while into the evening so it might be a little chilly (please dress warm). Please get in touch if you have any access needs.

Getting to the site

Please use the main entrance on Frenchay Park Road. There are loads of ways to get to Grow Wilder and we would encourage sustainable transport! There are plenty of spaces at the site to lock bikes. Grow Wilder is on the following bus routes: M1, M2, 48a, 19 and Y4. The Metrobus is only 10mins from the city centre: it is 1 stop from Cabot Circus to Grow Wilder (Begbrook). If you are driving please try to share cars as much as possible and park at Begbrook Social Club, which is very close.
