Lovejam Equinox Festival
Yes Lovejam Fam, after a few wonderful events already this year we bring an exciting new line-up for our last gathering at Avalon Priory for sometime.
We open in ceremony on Friday under the full moon for 3 nights & 2 days at the Lovejam Spring Equinox Festival in Avalon Priory as we continue to integrate the seasonal shifts as a community. 3.33pm Sunday Equinox blossoms at the equilibrium of dark & light as we gather around the sacred fire as family bearing creative offerings for a blessed spring.
The emergence of spring is all about new beginnings, fresh starts & birth. We are calling in community connection in this time of awakening after a winter of creative cultivation.
As always this is an alcohol–free event centred around authentic relating & self expression <3

VENUE: Avalon Priory
Built by William Stradling in 1836 Avalon Priory itself stands elegantly upon the Isle of Avalon. The castle is roughly 6 miles as the crow flies west of Glastonbury Tor which is considered the heart chakra of the earth and is visible from the exquisite Avalon Priory tower. The ancient land on which the Priory was built has been used by passing pilgrims for thousands of years, on route to The Tor
Once used as a mystery school and a freemason temple, many have utilised the energy and ley lines which run through the sacred chapel encompassed within the castle. The Priory is now a thriving events space and a vegan, alcohol free, community
Many a myth, both told and untold stories float in the Avalon midst’.
Horses roam fields within the 40 acres site along with an orchard and forests in this bucolic rural green landscape where the veil is thin, and the air is fresh.
