Event Details

Tonight we celebrate the dark and winter solstice under the stars. Many cultures celebrate the movement of the sun. Astrological events like the solstice and equinox have been observed by human beings around the world since ancient times. The winter solstice has been considered a time that marks the rebirth of the sun as the days begin to grow longer following the solstice. Different traditions and rituals regard it is a time for hope, rebirth and celebrating the gifts of the year’s harvest. For some cultures the fermentation of beer and wine was concluded and butchering and breeding of livestock was also taking place around the winter solstice. Feasting and fires is a common way to celebrate the longest night of year. We invite you to come and spend the evening with us on the winter solstice. More details to follow.
