It is known as the winter solstice, marking the day of the year with the fewest sunlight hours. The Winter Solstice is also known as Yule and is a joyful time of celebration filled P1100241with warmth, good tidings and cheerP1100245

Snow Q  at The Regency Town House in Hove – for one night only. The  event started as  a journey along a bleak corridor leading to a series of innovative and often colourful art installations, one created by children. A dramatic snow mountain landscape with lighting effects complimenting the drama of  Maria Jastrzebska’s poetry and  a new musical piece performed on a viola.
