New in 2017
2017 saw the introduction of even more traditional elements at the Mayfair. The Mayfair started as usual with a short procession and this was then followed by the spectacle of Jack-in-the-Green (the Green Man) and Primavera fighting and defeating the Ice Queen and Jack Frost – a powerful symbol of spring banishing winter.
At the end, the BIG DANCE saw 56 people dancing round the Maypole at the same time and settting a record which we will aim to beat next year.
