Summer 2015 Saturday night 20th June

vev47English Heriticage will open their gates to carpark and Stones at 7pm on Saturnday. There will be police and sniffer dogs. If you want to get into the Stones before the rush then get there on foot or by public transport. Lots of buses being laid on from Salisbury.

Last year’s solstice evening in the Stones there were loads of people milling about but only one drummer – so please Bring More Drums, and get into the Stones early for live acoustic rave as we’ve been doing for five thousand years !

Equinox Sunrise Saturday 21st March 2015

Access into the Stones through English Heriticage’s fences will be at around 5 a.m. on Saturday 21st March. We’ll meet up in the track the night before (heading east on the A303 turn left just before the Stones).

Unfortunately we all made a mistake at the planning meetings – on Friday 20th March the sun will rise partially eclipsed, and we may have to watch it from outside of their fences. drat. sorry.

At last winter solstice somebody damaged the Stones by splashing them with some kind of oil, and someone else chalked on the HeleStone.

 

BeanField Art required!!

Dear all
I am in search of artistic creations inspired by 1st June 1985. If anyone can contribute that would be fantastic. The search is part of a University project. Again all help greatly appreciated.

One love

Thank you

Battle of the Beanfield – JS Bach Version

thanks Tash – I’m giggling as I remember that day… the Bach music sort of shows it as clockwork (how different it would be with Clockwork Orange stylee music)  – from the moment we set out that morning, andor from whenever the thatcheroids were going to order a police attack – though it was up to all of us, cops and travellers, how we behaved … and it wasnt a battle, cos not one of us, from, the softest greenest liberalest to the hardest criminalisest anarchistest fought back – i could have killed a few foot coppers if i’d driven my bus at them and squashed them into another bus – but not one of us did .
The video seems to be in the correct time order, with the road standoff, then the grass field, and only at the end the escape into the beanfield  after I’d surrendered and been hit on the head –
