Not going to Glastonbury?
Free this weekend?
Stonehenge Acoustic Free Festival 
and Tribal Gathering 
June 21st - 23rd 2003 

Celebrate the Solstice and protest at English Heritage's decision to 
open Stonehenge on the wrong day! 

On Saturday 21st. June the temporary free Solstice car park at 
Stonehenge will be open from 00.01 hrs. to 14.00 hrs. (last 
admittance 11.00 hrs.) Free access to The Stones (subject to security 
searches) will only be permitted from 02.00hrs. to 12.00 hrs. 

Unfortunately the Solstice is at 20.10 hrs. on Saturday and the 
Solstice dawn occurs on Sunday June the 22nd. Campaigners intend to 
protest at the decision to deny access with music fun and agit prop 
Morris dancing. They are demanding full restoration of their 
traditional rights of free access to Stonehenge and provision of land 
for camping while attending the Midsummer Solstice Celebration from 
the 21st to 23rd June 2003. 

Amplified music is banned by English Heritage but acoustic musicians 
and groups wanting to participate in the celebration should contact

Nik Turner (of Hawkwind) are some of the performers who have already 
agreed to play. Bring blankets, food, water, a drum, a guitar, what 
you expect to find and join in the fun for the future of the 
Stonehenge Midsummer Solstice Celebration. 

(Avebury car park is to be closed for further entry on Friday 21st. 
June or earlier if full and no extra land is to be provided there for
