the First Day of Spring!


Welcome to the March equinox, marking the arrival of Spring.

When is the first day of spring?

The first day of Spring will be on Tuesday, 20 March 2018. This is based on the astronomical Vernal equinox, the day the sun shines directly over the equator, and in some cultures in the Northern Hemisphere this is taken to mark the first day of spring.

What is the first day of spring?

The time of the year that flowers are starting to bloom, lambs are being born, we have our longer days back and the sun is starting to peak through. Welcome to the official first day of Spring.

How can I celebrate the first day of spring?

Go to see a lambing event, pick your first daffodils or wildflowers, or take a spring equinox walk.

Tip: Wait until the countdown hits 0 if you're in for a treat!
