Welcome the summer solstice in London’s tallest building with raving, blessings and live music!
Welcome the summer solstice at the UK’s most exclusive event!
Hosted in conjunction with Morning Gloryville ‘The View from The Shard’ will open at 4.15am for Sky High Solstice!
Visitors will be able to gather above the capital and witness the new rays of light in a 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, the perfect place to bring in the longest day of the year.
As the tallest building in Western Europe, the multi-sensory journey takes you 244m (800ft) above London.
Events will kick off at the crack of dawn with a gong orchestra followed by a full summer solstice ceremony led by a trio of ceremonalists, each one representing one of the four elements.
Blessings, live music and a morning rave will follow with an impressive line-up of some of the UK’s best DJ’s and live musicians.
Morning Gloryville is for their immersive morning dance movement, which has seen events pop up all across London. They’ve featured some of the hottest DJ’s around and Sky High Solstice will be no different, with the names of those performing a closely guarded secret until the day.
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.
Pilgrims will be fully immersed into the Midsummer Magic theme and are encouraged to let their imaginations run wild with tribal face painting and wreath making.
The Summer Solstice takes place on 21st June, 4:15am – 8:30am, with tickets available to book from www.theviewfromtheshard.com with tickets £45 per adult, with children under 3 not requiring a ticket.
