Modern pagans will celebrate the festival of the God of light in Highgate.
Wicca: Seven Moons London, a group on the site Meetup, is planning to mark Lughnasadh in a socially-distanced way on July 25.
Named after the God Lugh - of light - the festival traditionally involves dancing, ritual games seen in Ireland’s Tailteann, feasting, trading crops, lighting a fire and cutting the first neck of corn.
However, the event organisers have stressed there will be no fire lighting and the event will be held within the law.
Attendees are asked to RSVP and bring offerings of corn, wheat, flowers and fruits.
