Midsummer Song


    Weds 21st June     10am – 11.30am

    Bradford on Avon

    Join us on the morning of the longest day of the year, the summer solstice, to celebrate Midsummer.

    Folk cultures around the world gather on this day to celebrate the sun, giver of life. In the Celtic tradition it is one of the four fire festivals marking the turning of the seasons.

    After Christianity became adopted in Britain, the festival became known as St John’s day an important day in the church calendar; the birthday of St John the Baptist.

    We will welcome the warmth of midsummer by learning simple songs in gorgeous two and three part harmonies in the stunning acoustics of the 11th century Saxon Church in Bradford on Avon.

    Please also be advised there are no toilet or kitchen facilities at the church.
