Solstice Eve

A reminder to all Beaker Folk that, since the standard of getting up on Solstice Morning is so appalling, we have transferred the Solstice Sunrise ceremony to tomorrow noon in the Moot House, where Young Keith will be projecting a video of the event onto the wall.

I know it doesn't have the raw spiritual experience of shivering in a damp meadow, peering at the horizon and wondering if the cloud will ever lift. But on the other hand, it means we will be able to watch it while warm, and wide awake.

If the recording's not very good tomorrow morning, don't worry. Keith has a selection of "best of" solstice sunrises, including from Stonehenge, Karnak and Lowestoft.

For those at work during the day, the Solstice will be repeated at 7pm. There will also be a matinee showing on Saturday.
