Celebrate the Summer Solstice with Morning Gloryville at the top of The Shard.
For the first time, The View from the Shard, at the top of London’s tallest building, will be opening its doors at dawn to welcome the summer solstice. Hosted in conjunction with Morning Gloryville, the immersive morning dance movement, the attraction will open at 4:15am on the 21st of June for Sky High Solstice.
Gather above the capital and witness the first new rays of light in a sacred ceremony of celebration. Located 800ft above the city’s skyline, The View from The Shard offers 360-degree panoramic views for up to 40-miles, making it the perfect place to bring in the longest day of the year.
Events will kick off at the crack of dawn with a gong orchestra and chants followed by a full summer solstice ceremony led by a trio of ceremonalists, each one representing one of the four elements (earth, wind, fire and water). Blessings, live music and a morning rave will follow with an impressive secret line-up of some of the UK’s best DJ’s and live musicians.
Spread over two floors, The View from The Shard is the highest point in the UK, the perfect location to worship the longest day of the year. The event, taking place across Level 69 and the open-air Skydeck on Level 72, will include theatrical performances, a head wreath workshop, a multi-sensory meditative pyramid experience, blessings from the elementals and a wishing tree.
What’s more, pilgrims will be fully immersed into the Midsummer Magic theme and are encouraged to let their imaginations run wild with fun tribal face painting and wreath making.
When: Wednesday 21st June, 2017.
