If you’re looking to celebrate summer solstice but can’t quite make it to Stonehenge for a 4-day camping festival then you don’t have to look any further than central London. Morning Gloryville will be bringing the spirit of the long-standing tradition to The Shard for a special early morning rave at London’s tallest landmark.
The longest day of the year will kick off bright and early at 4.15am on Wednesday 21st June, going on until 8.30am so you can impress your colleagues with an early morning festivity of the elements whilst still making it to work on time. The View from The Shard will provide unbeatable 360-degree panoramic views of London for up to 40 miles as you celebrate the ancient tradition in the heart of the city. The morning will be started with a gong orchestra and then be followed by four different ceremonials to praise the elements (earth, wind, fire and water). After this there will be a range of activities such as a drumming workshop, theatrical performances, an alter and wishing tree and pagan story-telling as well as some of London’s favourite DJs and live musicians. If that doesn’t turn you into a morning person then we don’t know what will!
Those who have missed out on Glastonbury tickets can still be showered in sequins, minus the mud, as they take over 2 floors of The Shard including level 69 and the open aired Skydeck on level 72. Morning Gloryville have provided the ultimate event to honour the sun and what better place to be than the UK’s highest point whilst catching the first few rays of the longest day of the year.
Summer Solstice at The View From The Shard will take place on Wednesday 21st June
