Annual Residential Course

The Order is now accepting applications for its 2023 training programme.

Come and experience an immersive teaching programme on the sacred isle of Anglesey, the ancestral seat of the ancient British Druids. Experience the Anglesey Druid Order's unique flavour of Druidry. The Order serves to rekindle the ancient seat of learning by providing a face to face teaching programme.

The Order\’s training programme takes place on the east coast of the island within a sacred landscape. The teachings, in keeping with tradition, are oral in nature and conducted face to face. The aim of the programme is to introduce students to the Order’s unique practise of Druidry and to encourage a relationship between the student and the sacred landscape of Anglesey.
