Walpurgisnacht Celebrations

Join Edward Pearse and Radio Riel at the Consulate of Europa Head Quarters in Kittiwickshire for an evening of dance and revelry as House Wulfenbach celebrates Walpurgisnacht.

In Germany Walpurgisnacht is an old Pagan celebration of Spring Eve, in much the same way as Samhain or Hallowe'en is the the precursor to Autumn and the heralding of Winter.

Goethe's Faust makes reference to the witches celebrating Walpurgisnacht atop Brocken Mountain and Disney's Fantasia famously depicts a version of Walpurgisnacht in the Night on Bald Mountain scene.

Thursday April 30th from 9 till midnight SLT.
