Applications for tickets for the Gorseddau will be accepted only after the announced date.
Subscribing members will be sent an email link for booking tickets 2-3 days before applications are accepted from other members (this only applies to subscriptions received 1 month before the announcement of ticket application). Subscriptions last for one year, and give those members advanced notice for the two subsequent rites.
Existing members of the Gorsedd (those who have previously attended, but are not subscribing members), will receive notification by email when applications are opened. Following this an announcement will be made on the Facebook page that applications are being accepted.
The Council of Elders of Cor Gawr reserve all rights in the allocation of tickets to all of our events.
Midwinter Rite 19th December 2020
Given the current circumstances with COVID-19, English Heritage has offered Cor Gawr a very limited option for a rite at Stonehenge this Winter Solstice.
Following this Sunday’s virtual meeting of the Council of Elders, it has been decided to proceed with a Socially Distanced rite at Stonehenge at Sunrise on Saturday 19th December, as offered by English Heritage.
We are only allowed a maximum of 15 participants, including the Priests, by EH.
Due to this we have had a very hard decision to make, how to offer tickets to the membership!
We have 4 Priests leading the rite this year, leaving 11 tickets for allocation.
As we have existing subscribing members, we are offering single tickets to them first. If they all accept, this will fulfil the participant allowance of EH, existing subscribing members will have 7 days to respond to the offer. Following this ticket application will be open to the general membership, as usual, on a first come first served basis. This year members will only be allowed to apply for a single ticket, so everyone within you group (who you would normally request tickets for) will have to apply themselves through the website application form.
Due to the extremely limited number of tickets available, the Council feel this is the fairest method of ticket allocation and we hope the membership agree with us. Anyone who applies for new subscription membership will not benefit from the membership until mid-summer 2021 at the earliest.
There is still a strong chance that Covid restrictions may remain in force at the time of the rite, in which time we may have to cancel at short notice. However, it is our intention to give a rite in the stones if we possible can.
We will post updates on progress with tickets on this page.
