Ken Barlow: Druid
Summer officially begins today, June 21st. Yes, it’s the Summer Solstice; a time of year favoured by Druids and Pagans alike.
Thousands converge on Stonehenge every year to celebrate the arrival of summer. William Roache (our Ken Barlow) is no stranger to the festivities. William, as well as being an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) is also a member of the Druid Order and has celebrated the Summer Solstice at Stonehenge.
William’s son Linus Roache recalls a childhood with Druid parents. “We had pendulums. We even had aura goggles; you were meant to be able to see people's auras through them."
