Come learn about the traditions occurring around the shortest day of the year! The programme consists of watching the sun set over the heel stone (weather permitting) followed by a presentation by Richard Hall of the tales and history of the Winter Solstice over both time and cultures
Solstice means the sun standing still. It is the day upon which the sun rises and sets at its most distant point on the horizon north or south of due east or due west. The two solstices are also the days with the longest and shortest hours of daylight.
