Celebrate Winter Solstice

Come out of hibernation and Celebrate Winter solstice

Winter solstice is an astrological event which marks the shortest day and the longest night of the year. Events celebrating Winter Solstice are gaining in popularity, and even though it seems counterintuitive to go out at night in winter, that's precisely what’s required to make the most of the winter solstice celebration.

We have put together a guide to help you come out of hibernation and take the edge off winter with these festive occasions.
