Summer Solstice

Date: 21st June
The summer solstice is the longest day of the year. It’s the moment in time when the Earth’s tilt towards the Sun is at its maximum and the Sun reaches its highest position in the sky. Traditionally to mark the arrival of summer in the United Kingdom people gather at Stonehenge, in Wilshire to see the sun rise. The Heel Stone and Slaughter Stone, set outside the main circle, align with the rising sun.

Windrush Day

Windrush Day marks the anniversary of the arrival of MV Empire Windrush at the port of Tilbury, near London, on 22nd June 1984. Those who arrived on the Empire Windrush, their descendants and those who followed them, have made and continue to make an enormous contribution to Britain.
