By star and stone
By the power of the land
Within and without
By all that is fair and free...

LongstoneHAIL, Spirit, and welcome to the online home of Druidry on the Isle of Wight, a small but beautiful and sunny Island just off the south coast of England where the ancestral torch has been re-kindled after many hundreds of years so its inhabitants may once again celebrate the turning of the wheel of the year in harmony with their roots and with their natural surroundings.

This website is intended to be a useful resource for anyone interested in learning more about this powerful native tradition and a point of contact for anyone living on the Island, holidaying here or even just passing through who wishes to know more or simply to experience the tremendous beauty and joy of re-establishing intimate contact with the natural world around them, with the ways of their ancestors and with the true depth of their inner instinctive selves.


Wight Druids, or the Grove of Ynys Weith, was established at Midsummer 2004 to celebrate the eight Druid festivals at the key nodal points of each year in open rites and to provide a nurturing 'home' for all those in search of their true inner selves, their wellspring of inspiration.

And may your Journey be Blessed.

Bestival 2013

Bestival 2013

A HUGE and enthusiastic crowd packed into the Big Top at Bestival 2013 to join in the official opening ceremony performed on stage by Wight Druids.

A major feature of the event was what could well be a record number of voices raised in our traditional Awen chant. Certainly a major highlight for us!

Lichen mazeWIGHT Druids have been offering open public ritual to celebrate the eight festivals of each year on the Isle of Wight since 2004.
We have also conducted rites of passage and offered open ritual at a couple of Island music festivals, as well as taking part in joint rites with our Native American friends, both Island-based and from the original First Nations. We have even conducted a boat blessing.
In accordance with our ethic, everything we offer is always free - including A Perennial Course in Living Druidry, which we have been hosting on the Island for more than two years, now.
This is our way of repaying, in some measure, the enormous gifts of knowledge and understanding with which we have been regaled since joining the Druid community.
Thus we would hope to pass our Blessings forward.
