With thoughts and insights from

Taking inspiration from the winter solstice (21st December), we and our specially chosen Artists will explore the rituals and natural phenomena associated with it.

The shortest day and longest point of darkness in the year, the solstice is a solar phenomenon and a turning point in our seasonal calendar, one which humans have celebrated for thousands of years. It is in keeping with this tradition that we invite you to witness our celestial offering.


In this 20 minute piece our artists will take you on an episodic journey from dawn to dusk through the Heart of the Boyne Valley, Tara Hill.

Join us as we we explore what it is to emerge from darkness before returning to it.

“Is the solstice only about longing for light? Is it not also about celebrating the deepest dark?”
