May 1st 2015 The Dawn Chorus from the tower of the Shandon Bells at St. Anne's Church Shandon.
Church of St. Anne (Shandon Bells) – Friday 1st May 6:05am
Admission: Free of charge*
Shandon Bells will once again host a dawn chorus this May Day, welcoming the first day of summer in our Shandon Sunrise event.
At 06.05am, sunrise on Friday 1st May, the dawn will be met with a chorus of voices singing from the bell tower of the iconic Church of St. Anne, Shandon and followed by an ecumenical service. This unique performance has become a much loved annual event and marks the ancient celebration of the first day of summer. Those interested in attending are advised to arrive at 5.50am.
*Please note that due to space constraints, public will not be admitted to the bell tower itself. However, the performance will be enjoyed on the steps of the church as the sun rises as well as in the church for the service that follows.
