Wherever we are, we are under the influence of the sun. When it rises, we stretch and greet the new day; as it fades over the horizon, we return home to rest. It inspired humanity's oldest rituals, especially at Stonehenge in Wiltshire, where celebrations have continued since the days of the Druids.
Come out on June 18th and celebrate the Solstice as our ancestors did. Come out in your summer finery, breezy bright clothes, frivolous dresses, Hawaiian shirts and shorts, hey there might even be a prize for best dressed lady and man, so give up on those gray wintery colours, cast aside the dark suits and have fun at the Summer Solstice Dinner. ￼
