Presented by Westray Heritage Trust and Westray and Papa Westray Tourist Association: Stories in Stones: The stone tools of Prehistoric Orkney Mark Edmonds and Hugo Anderson-Whymark. Prof. Edmonds, University of York, is a member of the Research Committee for the Orkney World Heritage Area. His interests encompass prehistory, landscape and memory and on the social dimensions of technology. He is also interested in exploring new connections between archaeology and the visual and performing arts. He says that, despite his best efforts, he still remains hopelessly fascinated by prehistoric stone tools and the potential that they offer for our understanding of past lives. He will talk about the use of stone, stone tool manufacture and stone resources- and he would very much like the opportunity to look at stone objects and collections that people have collected here over the years.
Our ritual is based on those provided by the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, but the wording is inclusive and designed to be accessible for people of all religions / beliefs and none. We welcome everyone who wishes to attend. There is no charge and we ask only that you bring your open mind and warm heart. We ask that any minors (under 18) attend only with a parent or guardian please. We meet at the southern entrance to the Ring of Brodgar and we are quite obvious! As a Bardic ritual, we invite participants to join in, perhaps by taking a speaking part, or bringing a reading or piece of music to share. Join in as much as you are comfortable with – if you only wish to observe, please be equally welcomed. We usually conclude by sharing mead and honey-cake … and then we regroup at a local hotel for a social. Please feel free to contact Helen or Mark Woodsford-Dean for further information.

The Orkney Folk Festival is widely regarded as one of Scotland’s most prolific folk festivals, and a must-see event in both the UK calendar of folk events, and Orcadian community diary. With the event in its 33rd year, artistes travel from around the world to perform at the four-day event, where they are welcomed by Orkney’s own thriving folk scene. The majority of action takes place in Stromness, with a number of other events scheduled throughout the isles over the long weekend, and with concerts, ceilidhs, workshops, talks, family events, clubs, pub sessions… there’s something for everyone at the festival, which is renowned for its legendary hospitality and ‘craic’.
