In June next year the Salisbury Festival will present a “Fire Garden” at Stonehenge as part of the London 2012 Festival, a 12 week UK-wide celebration in the summer of 2012 in the run up to the Olympics.

As the sun goes down over one of Britain’s most iconic World Heritage sites, French outdoor alchemists Compagnie Carabosse fan the flames of our imaginations with an elemental Fire Garden. A magical, sensory experience awaits you as Stonehenge is transformed into a glowing fairytale environment where fire sculptures dance in the landscape, mysterious fiery engines illuminate the stones and flaming fire pots and cascades of candles line the pathways.

Compagnie Carabosse have organised many such shows and here’s one they did for the Singapore Arts Festival

The event will be held during the evenings of the 10th, 11th and 12th July. Rest assured, English Heritage will make very sure that the world will not be witnessing even one of the performers standing on any of the stones. That will have happened three weeks earlier.
