Ignite your ancient spirit, as Navan Centre & Fort’s celebration of the festival of Lughnasa is back for 2024, with The Return of the Wickerman on 10th August from 6:30pm-10:30pm!

As the clan marks the beginning of the harvest season, they will honour the Celtic Sun God, Lugh, with the awe-inspiring spectacle of the ceremonial burning of the 30ft Wickerman.

Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the past with captivating living history performances, showcasing life in the Iron Age and marking the great festival of Lughnasa. Experience the rhythmic beats and stirring melodies of live musical performances by local performers, discover local artisan craft makers and enjoy our wide array of interactive family friendly activities, ensuring all ages are engaged and enthralled, as anticipation builds ahead of the great fire ceremony!

Why not embrace the heritage of the Celts by donning traditional attire to feel a real part of the clan? Suggestions include colourful tunics, Celtic jewellery or a Summer Headdress and traditional warrior face painting.

Together, we will gather for this unforgettable evening to celebrate a fiery display of colour, community, culture and creativity at The Return of the Wickerman!
