Bringing in the May

Bringing in the May

Discover the history behind the May Day celebrations as we prepare the site ready for the start of summer. Learn about the traditions behind the gathering of flowers on May eve, and join us as we decorate the site with the flowers and greenery over the weekend.

We will also be looking at the traditions of a May Day basket, and the folklore behind the Hawthorne tree. With an array of hands on activities for all ages to enjoy.

We suggest that visitors pre-book tickets to guarantee their visit.
