Join Dorset’s most beloved immersive theatre company, Earth Kin Events, tomorrow, Saturday, June 18, for a summer solstice celebration like no other, in Europe’s largest, most magnificent Earthouse.
Occurring annually in the northern hemisphere in June, the summer solstice takes place on the longest day of the year when the sun appears to reach its highest point in the sky.
Ancient monuments aligned with the astrological movements of the sun such as Stonehenge, the Temple of Karnak in Egypt and the Temple of the Sun in Machu Picchu, Peru, suggest the peoples of Earth have marked the summer solstice as a significant spiritual and cultural event since prehistoric times.
Today, the summer solstice is welcomed by many as the official start of the summer season and the herald of warmer days in the sun.
Earth Kin Events specialises in connecting people in the UK of all faiths and none to their heritage, their local landscapes and each other through storytelling, gentle ritual and music.
