Faeries Understand Cosmic Knowledge @ Spirit of the Marsh 2018
Faeries Understand Cosmic Knowledge were started at The Three Crane jam night and is a somewhat eclectic project with a rather unusual sound. Influenced by bands such as Hawkwind, Tangerine Dream, PFRP, Fear Factory, Aurora and Captain Roswell, to name but a few, we use synths, bass guitar and ethereal guitar sounds to produce a trance style dance beat.
While certainly there are a few festival bands creating similar music we are in no way mainstream and are constantly experimenting with our sound. We may use sample and backing tracks for part of our live sound while at other times relying on a full scale epic jam.
Faeries Understand Cosmic Knowledge will be playing on 6/5/2018.
We are very pleased to announce a new speaker at Spirit of the Marsh 2018, Tales of the Wodewose, a talk by Andy McGrath.
Andy McGrath, is a Crypto ‘Enthusiast’ with over 25 years of research and obsession about the unknown creatures living right under our noses here on this tiny island in the North Atlantic.
From a wildlife point of view, the accepted fauna of The British Isles were discovered and catalogued in their finite and immoveable state in the 19th century. Nothing has really been added to this list or considered worthy since and the continual reports of Water Monsters, Bigfoot, Mystery Big Cats and UFC’s (Unidentified Flying Cryptids) are largely ignored or used as newspaper fillers to entertain us. Andy’s focus is on current research and recent sightings, pictures, videos and eyewitness accounts of the many cryptids of the British Isles.
Although vast advancements in science and technology have brought great discoveries in other lesser known parts of the world, our island lies largely under explored and overlooked. At night, outside of the busy cities and next to the unlit lakes and lonely mountains it is an island in darkness, where nobody ventures into the woods anymore and the pervading paradigm scares all but the most fool hardy scientists away from any serious investigation of the many yet to be discovered – Beasts Of Britain
Author of Beasts of Britain http://amzn.eu/3vqXVa6 he is also currently working on his own documentary under the same name, as well as being involved in the international groundbreaking documentary ‘Cryptozoologist’ by Matt Ralston and Brad Abrahams; which features some of the world’s most prolific cryptozoologists talking about their research and the reasons behind their passion for the unknown.

A WARM WELCOME TO YOU FROM THE RAVEN TREE – YOU MAY COME AS A STRANGER, BUT MAY YOU LEAVE AS A FRIEND!
Here at The Raven Tree, we live and breath nature. We love the earth and all the wonderful resources provided all around us. We spend many hours out in the country air, growing, foraging and collecting so that we can provide the best products we possibly can. Everything we offer is either grown, handcrafted or foraged by us and comes from the local environment or our very own garden. As well as being nature based, we also enjoy art and pyrography, so some of our pieces incorporate this love, becoming an original one of a kind gift. We don’t mass produce our products as all are made with our very own hands and we are more than happy to try and meet your own personal requirements, so please do get in touch if you would like to commission something specific.

There is loads of great stuff to do at Spirit of The Marsh but you will probably want to take a look at the beach, especially if you are bringing your four legged friend.
Getting to the beach is simple from the Spirit of The Marsh site.
Head down the track from the main gate towards the road.
When you get to the main road cross to the other side here. Take crossing care as this road can be quite busy at times (by Lincolnshire standards!)
When you have crossed the road head towards Sutton on Sea (to your right as you cross over). Walk a short way down this road, you will pass Greenfield Stores and Caravan Park on your left and then cross over the side road called Eaton Road.
After crossing Eaton Rd you will pass a bungalow and to your left is a public footpath. Go down here.
Keep walking down the footpath and you will join onto a caravan site roadway (still classed as the public footpath). Keep walking down the roadway following the footpath signs and you will come to the beach.
Please ensure that dogs are kept on leads until you are at the beach, especially whilst on the caravan site. Please ensure that you clear up any doggy poop.
From the Spirit of the Marsh car park head down the lane to the main road. Here turn left towards Mablethorpe.
Keep on this road, you will pass Jewsons on the right hand side and then get to a sharp left hand bend with Trusville on the right. Here turn right towards Trusville.
Ahead of you is the ramp to the beach, parking is to the left and right (don’t park on the ramp). There is some designated disabled parking here also. Due to the work being done here parking is limited.
If this parking area is full then head out of the car parking area back to the main road. Turn right here heading to Mablethorpe. Head down this road and you will come to a sharp left hand bend, here turn right. There is some street parking on the left hand side however parking restrictions come into force from May 1st.
Further down this road to the left hand side is a pay and display car park. There is no height barrier here. To get to the beach head back towards the main road and go up the ramp.
Please note that when you get to the top of the ramp with the beach in front of you the beach to the left is a dog free area from the 1st May. The beach to the right towards Sutton is fine.

My name is Jacqui and I’m passionate about organic food and a chemical free lifestyle. I became vegetarian over 20 years ago and vegan for 10 years. I love the feeling of wellness that this lifestyle provides. It’s an ethical choice that is not only beneficial to me, but also our amazing Earth and all of the life that She supports.
Having a dislike of meat substitutes and processed foods, I started experimenting with wholefoods such as; beans, pulses, nuts and seeds, and developed a wide selection of healthy, nutritious and wheat – free recipes and decadent dairy free desserts. I’ve always loved to feed people. One friend commented many years ago that I was like ‘her Nana’, and so it was a natural progression to open up The Veganic Kitchen.
