    It’s been known that an old custom of `Swearing on the Horns’ used to take place in the High Gate area every year for many decades..! Hern’s Tribe began to enact this Ceremony some years ago, at Queen’s Woods (along with the `Windsor Hern ritual’ - another old custom that is said to be done for the well-being of the Sovereignty of this land).

    Join us for a special Summer event outdoors in North London, at Queen’s Woods, for this Ceremony. Participate in it, and swear on the Horns of Hern, for your well-being, and that of the land, and make an oath of your promise to Hern or the Green-Man of the land in return.. to do your honorable best for the land and it’s people! Afterwards, join in with festivities, drumming & singing, and Summer feasting..  and perhaps some Story telling the evening approach... of Fairies, Dragons, and magical realms.  Bring drums, masks, horns (if you have any), food & drinks,  and any poetry & songs to share!

    Date: Saturday 29th June 2013.  Time: 2.00pm to 4.00pm (core ceremony). Socials ongoing afterwards till last person leaves!  Venue: Central clearing at Queen’s Woods, North LondonHow to get there:   Get to `Highgate tube station’ (northern line), then to main road ( Archway Road). Turn in to Wood Lane, which becomes Queen’s Wood Road half way through.  On the left hand side, at this bend is a formal entrance (with sign board) to the park. We’ll have ribbons tied up to mark the way!  Map ref:
