LOCAL businesses are to celebrate the Celtic New Year at this weekend's Denbigh Plum Feast, which coincides with the 'Samhain' Festival.
The end of October and beginning of November was a significant time for our Celtic ancestors.
The hard work of the harvest was over and the animals brought in from the hills for the winter months.
The old year was coming to a close and it was time to mark the birth of the new one.
It was a time to celebrate and they did so at their ‘Samhain’ Feast. Families and communities came together around massive bonfires.
They shared food and tales, played games and dressed up.
In the spirit of the Celtic Samhain Festival, two local businesses are coming together to celebrate the new and let go of the old at the Plum Feast on November 2 and 3.
Five local ladies, Sarah Griffiths, Debbie Baker, Kerry Jones, Michelle Jackson and Joanne Reeves have been chosen to be ‘transformed’ at the Double Crown Hairdressers.
They are all having new hairstyles and Double Crown will be revealing their new autumn collection of colours. The ladies’ new looks will be revealed during the day.
Vintage MaryDei are also looking to transform the people of Denbigh.
Sisters Nerys Ann Roberts and Mair Jones will be encouraging people to have fun on the day by dressing up in disguise as our Celtic ancestors did.
There will be a big dressing up box at the Vintage MaryDei stall at the Denbigh Plum Feast and people are encouraged to donate any old clothes for the occasion.
