SEVEN Stroud ballet dancers mark summer solstice 2024 at the Rococo Garden exedra, in Painswick, Gloucestershire.

Summer Solstice in the UK was at 9.50 pm on Thursday the 20th of June.

The dancers ; Tallulah Hardy, Tilia Olner, Lilanne Olner, Daisy Topps, Daisy Henderson, Lauren Gilroy, Eleanor Widdowson, are from the Ballyhoo Dance and Theatre School, Stroud.

Benjamin Hyett designed the flamboyant pleasure garden in 1740 and the experimental creation is scattered with an eclectic array of eccentric buildings resulting in a tranquil haven from modern life.
