The Wookey Witch is cooking up a romantic recipe for Valentine’s Day this year. Focusing on love, blessings and commitment, the famous witch will perform her first ever hand blessing ritual in the stunning underground caves.
Lit by candlelight and surrounded by millions of years of untouched history, the underground caves are the perfect setting for this romantic gesture. Bringing a touch of magic to the celebration, the Wookey Witch will perform individual blessing for couples visiting the tourist attraction next week, free of charge.
In any tradition, a hand blessing is a ritual that is meant to draw two people closer together. Hands are considered to be a connection to the heart, and so the hand blessing ceremony symbolically brings two hearts together. The Wookey Witch will perform this blessing for all guests wishing to participate on Friday 14 February 2020, from 11am until 2pm.
The Wookey Witch comments, “Wookey Hole is Somerset’s oldest and biggest attraction, and I’m exciting to bring an extra bit of magic to this romantic celebration. I’m known for having a heart of stone, but I’ll soften it for this one day. We look forward to spreading the love with all our visitors!”
