I talk to Jonathan Goldsmith artist and larp designer Nina Runa Essendrop about their plans to create 'A Solstice Experience' - a joy filled ritual celebration of the Summer Solstice in the middle of the stunning Waterlow Park in Highgate, North London. This unique magical event is designed as a Solstice Beacon for London, a fundraiser for Campfire and a chance to spread the word about Campfire Convention throughout London.

Campout 2018 was an extraordinary gathering, held at The Bridge Inn in the Black Mountains and curated by its own members. On these two Firecasts, we hear from Campfirers who came and made it what it was - "playful, freeing, inspiring, challenging, intense, healing, magic and fun" were some of the descriptions used.

In conversation with folk legends Blowzabella - celebrating 40 years of their inimitable, drone-based wall of sound. They remain largely unknown outside their own cult circles. The band's latest workshop weekend, at Halsway Manor in the Quantock Hills in west Somerset brought the Blowzabella family together to celebrate this unique DIY cottage industry that is moving into top gear. It's the sort of musical concept that the corporations wouldn't understand, let alone be able to bottle and sell.
