Meeting at the Circle Restaurant
The celebrations begin with a gathering outside the restaurant near the National Trust shop at 12 noon. From there, we move to the great southern entrance to the henge. A woman (usually) sits in the seat of one of the two huge sarsen stones that flank the entrance to represent the guardian of the stones. After she has given her blessing on our presence, we move to the Ring Stone for any handfastings, then (usually) on to the southern inner circle for the main part of the rite, which ends with bardic performances.
