LIVESTREAM Summer Solstice Sunrise
Watch the sunrise at Britain's most easterly town, Lowestoft. Accompanied by Kosmos – Music from around the globe that is ‘full of passion, sunshine and joy’ (Galway Gazette).
Lowestoft is the most easterly town in the UK. This means that every morning the very first light of day hits this sandy Suffolk beach first before spreading its warmth across the country. So what better place could there be to come together to mark the solstice than this stunning natural setting?
Celebrating one cycle of midsummer sun setting and rising over the beach in Britain’s most easterly town, and inspired by our relationship with the sea, sun, moon, stars, time and tides.
As we turned our faces to the sun and looked to heal and renew after so many months of isolation, many of you joined us to rejoice in Britain’s most easterly midsummer solstice with our dawn livestream, visual art and music on the vast expanse of Lowestoft’s beautiful South Beach, and enjoyed our town-wide art installation that showcased creativity and participation.
Let’s reconnect with friends, family and the world around us, as we enjoy the Longest Days of Summer 2021.
