Summer Solstice at the Shard with Morning Gloryville

Ever fancied seeing in the summer solstice from the Shard? Well, now you can. The immersive morning dance specialists Morning Gloryville will collaborate with The Shard to open the doors at 4.15am on 21st June for Sky High Solstice. It should be stunning if the weather carries on being so clear. Not to say transcendent, as the summer solstice is a celebration that dates back to pre-Christian times.


Revellers will be 800 feet above the city skyline, which affords such excellent views that hopefully you’ll be able to see 40 miles into the surrounding area. Past meets present in a truly up-to-date act of sun worship.


The itinerary begins with a gong orchestra, followed by chanting and a full summer solstice ceremony led by 3 ceremonialists, representing the four elements of earth, air, fire and water. There will also be a morning rave, blessings, live music and DJs, whose identities will not be released until the event.

Lucky celebrants will have access to level 69 and the open-air deck on level 72 and should expect theatre, a head wreath workshop, meditation within a pyramid, a wishing tree, and tribal face-painting. Happy solstice everyone.
