Burning the Wicker Man

If you fancy doing something a little bit different this Halloween then the Wicker Man may be the event for you.

With a bare minimum of human sacrifice and absolutely no Nicolas Cage, The Wicker Man at St Fagan’s National History Museum is a reinvention of an ancient Celtic ceremony; it is a celebration of man’s relationship with nature. 

The Wicker Man is being built at St Fagan’s between the 27 and the 30 of October and will be burned on the 31st. St Fagan’s is only a short bus trip from Cardiff and is described by Ed Townsend of Cardiff and Co as, “A living tribute to 500 years of Welsh history.”

Admission to the event and to the rest of the museum is free.
