Attention all Maypole Moms

Since the idea was first proposed, last year, there has been a huge amount of interest in our plans to put on a Mom's Maypole on Festival Day, Saturday, the 30th June this year. If we get enough participants we will be putting on a reduced programme of string dances. It could be a lot of fun for moms and children.

This will happen after the girls have finished the afternoon performance and before they leave the field.

Please register your interest by giving us your name and contact details on the forms that will be at Maypole registration on Monday 26th Feb 2018 at Dame Elizabeth Hall. Practices will start when we go to Rowheath in June

You will need to be dressed in white to perform.

Hope to hear from you.
