Karen Kay is a former BBC news editor who communicates with fairies. She founded her own International fairy magazine called ‘FAE’. A passionate nature lover, her friendship with the fairies began in her grandmother’s garden as a young child, where she used to collect rose petals to make perfume for the flower fairies. She is related to renowned fairy poet and author, Walter De La Mare.
Karen currently writes a monthly fairy column for Soul & Spirit magazine.
“Faeries are very dear to me, as I see them as earth angels and guardian of our beautiful planet earth! I create events that convey a sense of the magic that awaits when you connect with the beautiful energy of the faerie realms. I am related to the poet Walter de la Mare, who is known for his fairy poetry. You may have noticed I LOVE faeries, angels, unicorns, mermaids, and all things mystical!”
Karen also founded the 3 Wishes Fairy Festival, the UK’s first faerie festival with overnight camping, live music stages and faerie entertainment. She also founded the first UK Faery Balls established in 2006. She has organised events since 1994 and founded Love & Light Events, the divine platform for all of her events, past, present, and future – including; Earth, Health & Mystic Fayres (Est. 1994), The Angel Conference (a one-off event in 1999), Faery, Angel & Healing Fayre (Est. 2003), The Green Man Midsummer Festival in Birmingham (a one-off event in 2005), The Faery Ball (Est 2006) and the 3 Wishes Faery Fest (Est 2007). She launched the Glastonbury Avalon Faery Ball and Avalon Faery Fayre in 2009.
