Calling all angels, fairies and witches – you are invited to head along to this weekend’s Merry Meet in Ingleburn.

One of the event’s organisers, Liz Thorn said Merry Meet aimed to provide community awareness about spiritually minded people.

Ms Thorn welcomed people to dress up in costume for the third annual event on Saturday at the Ingleburn Community Centre.

“It’s going to be a magical day,” she said.

“It’s about not taking everything too seriously. You can dress up as a witch, even if you don’t practise as one.

“It’s a celebration of people’s natural abilities and is a family friendly event.”

Ms Thorn said people from all belief backgrounds, from Wiccans to pagan, could attend Merry Meet.

“The event is for people who are curious [about spirituality] or who are starting their spiritual journey,” she said.

“It’s about not taking everything too seriously... it's a celebration of people's natural abilities.

There will be plenty on offer for adults and children at Merry Meet.

Ms Thorn said there would be market stalls, natural and herbal therapy sessions, Reiki readings, dance and much more.

“We will have a small prize for the most fancy dressed child,” she said.

“We are holding the event to help people network with each other. It’s a fun day, with a slight medieval theme.”

The first two Merry Meets generated money for several local organisations including Beautiful Minds, Harmony House and the Campbelltown Labyrinth Project.

Ms Thorn said organisers were still to decide which group to fundraise for this weekend.

“But money raised will go back into the local community,” she said.

Ms Thorn owns the Elizabeth’s Crystal Garden shop in Campbelltown.

Elizabeth’s Crystal Garden is one of several shops based within the 261 Queen Street courtyard.

“Angels told me to open my shop in 2011 and we welcome all people,” Ms Thorn said.

“We want to promote our courtyard at Merry Meet because we’re tucked away on Queen Street.” 

The Ingleburn Community Centre will host Merry Meet this Saturday, October 27 from 10.30am to 4.30pm.

Entry is $5 per adult while children under 12 enter free.
