The site, which features standing stones, a great avenue, huge mounds and the beautiful Sun Amphitheatre, will open at 4am on Tuesday, 21 June.

Summer Solstice at the Multiverse will be relaxed and informal, with activities that gently enhance the experience of being in a place specifically designed to link us to the cosmos.

There will be music, outdoor theatre, tai chi and yoga sessions around various parts of the Multiverse – with a special performance from the top of the mounds that represent the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies.

However, the idea is for visitors to have the time and space to mark the solstice in their own way, enjoying a site that many feel has a sense of spirituality akin to ancient henges and stone circles. It also represents the next stage in the emergence of the art installation, created by the late Charles Jencks, into an outdoor events and performance venue.

“Crawick Multiverse was created to be ‘a cosmic landscape worthy of the ancients’ and is the perfect place to celebrate the solstice,” said Sharon Glendinning, Crawick Multiverse General Manager.

“The events and activities we have planned are intended to be engaging and fun, while bringing people closer to the tranquillity of the natural world around us, and the wider universe.”
