May Day   -  3rd May 2020

 

May day during the 17th century was a big festival.  Houses were festooned with may blossom, green vegetation and any colourful cloths that were to hand. Mayday marked the coming of spring and new life.  Food was becoming plentyful again, a time to eat, drink and be merry.

 

Join in the celebration with us!  Hear stories from the Hagstone story teller, and see the Green Man, the Hobby horse and much more
