May Day celebrations
Join us for our May Day celebrations this Bank Holiday Monday (1 May).
Grab a maypole ribbon and join the traditional dancers as they weave their magic, demonstrating an age-old tradition.
Take part in traditional craft activities make a green man mask or a May Queen crown and join the daily procession to see who will be crowned Jack o’ the Green and the May Queen.
You can also discover the delights of playtime in the last century, banish boredom with traditional street games including hopscotch and skipping. Take up the challenge to see how long you can keep the hoop rolling in the hoop and stick game and test your skill with a cup and ball and the whip and top.
Not forgetting our usual’s – you can also enjoy a trip ‘Into the Thick’, experiencing life in a 1850s coal mine, attend a Victorian school lesson and try our famous traditionally cooked Fish & Chips.
