Magical solstice night

We hosted our first magical midsummer night feast, a night of fantastic food, mead, music, merrymaking, flowers and fun.

It was a chance to get the garden looking more gorgeous than ever, spruced, swept, rinsed and readied for our biggest crowd yet.
The cosy centre space was warmed by the midsummer fire, and surrounded by flowers, the hum of quiet conversation, sweet violin and thumping double base echoed around as we munched on wild herbs, greens, slow cooked lamb and finished with the lightest of meringues and garden berries.

We were treated to a gentle, settled a swarm of bees, soon re-hived by our beekeepers, and as the light sank low, the fire roared and we retreated from the city around us.
