Here is the second possible suggestion we’ve had.
(See our original article in which we asked for ideas. Please feel free to suggest more.)

English Heritage were clearly delighted with the recent Fire Garden event (see the video here). No wonder. Everyone that attended loved it, no risks were taken and had they charged admission it would have made an excellent profit. Those are three strong reasons for repeating it or something similar annually.

But Stonehenge….. Fire?….. is there a connection? Who knows, but isn’t it a fair bet there is more of a connection between Stonehenge and fire ceremonies than with anything else that presently takes place there? And doesn’t “The Stonehenge Festival of Fire” sound exactly right?! Could it be held to correspond with Diwali, the Festival of Lights associated with Hinduism, Sikhism, and Jainism and with Hanukkah, the Jewish Festivals of Light, thereby fulfilling the official ambition to achieve greater inclusivity in British heritage sites?
