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.

It was unsettling but a totally justified effect given the subject matter of the play.
