All Souls' Day 2019 CANCELLED
Saturday 2nd November 2019 - 7pm-9pm
We regret to announce that due to a yellow weather warning of wind and rain on Saturday 2 November, and taking into account the exposed nature of the burial ground, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year's All Souls evening.
This is an important date in our calendar and we are disappointed not to be able to gather this year.
The meadow remains open for you to visit at any time to remember your loved ones.
Saturday 2nd November 7pm - 9pm, simple ceremonial celebration of all our ancestors at around 7:30pm
Thank you for a magical evening by the fire and for making the burial ground so beautiful. I enjoyed what you said Rupert - it seemed to cover everything and the saying of names was good...and great to have so many people there - alive and dead!
Thank-you so much for last night; a beautiful ceremony.
A big heartfelt thank-you for your very beautiful All Souls’ Celebration - a real gift for the community.
I felt very honoured to have a personalised invitation - thank you so much.
The Ceremony was very moving and thought-provoking. Reading out all those names was such a thoughtful touch. It was such a beautiful evening and the hot apple juice, lovely hot soup and apple cake were absolutely delicious. I can't thank you enough for all the effort that had put into this memorable occasion.
Thank you so very much for the other night’s ceremony. I found it extremely therapeutic on many levels.
A huge thank-you for the wonderful, moving evening at Sharpham Meadow for All Souls’ Day.
There are no words to express the grief any of us feel or try to share, but there with your words flowing over the huge crowd sat by the fire with all the stars above and the river at our feet it was just a really special evening...I am in no hurry to rest my body in the ground just yet but what a wonderful place to be at the end. You have both made our end the beginning of so much healing and celebration.
