feat #3 | pedestrianists x solstice | jun 20, 24

The summer solstice (the day on which the sun is the farthest from the equator) has been celebrated since the Neolithic era. This period is typically seen as 'a time when the normal laws of nature or divinity could be suspended…when humans could exceed the usual limitations of their world'*

Join us on 20 June 2024 as we put this theory to the test and devote ourselves to the worship of the city's sun by walking from dawn until dusk on the longest day of the year (with a few stops along the way).

Meet: 04:30am (sunrise) in Greenwich Park. There will be other opportunities to join the walk throughout the day.
