Church of St. Anne (Shandon Bells) – Friday 1st May 6:05am

Shandon Bells once again hosted a dawn chorus on May Day, welcoming the first day of summer in our Shandon Sunrise event.

At 06.05am, sunrise on Friday 1st May, the dawn was 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.
