Druid’s Drink 2019
Yep, it’s that time of year again. When would-be druids, naked dog walkers and berry eaters gather for a firm handshake, a toast to the ‘stones’ and a good ole fashioned chinwag. Pagans, songwriters, lost Christmas Eve revellers, archaeologists, retired adult movie stars, chemical engineers, poets, millionaire ex-bookshop owners, far left anarchists, cyclists, probation workers, consultant radiographers, photographers, international rugby players and their kids & dogs will once again be in attendance as it promises to be a great occasion.
Whether your tipple is a flute of the finest champagne or Aldi’s strongest mead, colourful umbrellas will be twirling (weather permitting), drums drumming and the smell of roasting animal fat will be making all the veggies sick with grief. A year’s worth of banter will be divulged through hungover eyes before it’s back home to mutilate one of Dawkin’s creatures (or a lone Turnip in Davis’s case).
Started in 2013 by members of www.pontytown.co.uk, the annual Christmas Day ‘morning drinkies at the druid stones’ kicks off again at 12:00pm. Massive crowds are once again expected to converge on the Rocking Stones, Pontypridd Common, for what some have called the new Glastonbury. Well, it’s usually noisy and muddy anyway.
For the real stalwarts the party continues at the Llanover Arms at 1:00pm and everyone is welcome.
Merry Christmas Ponty People.
