The Temple Of Dionysus

The Divine Madness of Maenads, Intoxication & Dark Theatre.

Based in the UK, but with like minded affiliates across the world.

The Gathering

Sat 27th & Sun 28th Apr 2024

Dumfries & Galloway Location

It begins with you, an audience, a witness... in a place where psychological ritual meets erotic performance, and ends with all on the dance floor.

If you want to drink, then come... 

If you want to dance, then come...

If you want to resonate with and tread the ancient

spiritual path of the God of Theatre, Women & Wine, then come...

Ticket Only Event

Laughter. Euphoria. Liberation.

Creating a Modern Space for the Ancient Divine

At the Temple of Dionysus we believe in transformative sexuality, joyous vulgarity, loud music and a jolly good piss up, creating moments that leave a lasting impression. What differentiates us from a night out in Newcastle is our spirituality. WTF? we hear you cry...

ALL intoxication, including that of the flesh, can be a communion with the divine.  We create distinctive events that acknowledge that the past held much wisdom. Using ritual drama and music, tailored to our specific needs and desires, we build a Modern Temple environment such as Dionysus himself would feel at home in. Our shamanic blend of Maenad Priestesses, fine wine and banging music shot through with freedom, humour and truth-saying, ignites a fire that calls the god Himself. 

Get in touch to learn reality.
