Come and play this May Day

The Parks Trust is looking forward to welcoming local people to its Mini May Day Celebration this Sunday May 1 from noon until 3pm. Open to everyone and free to attend, the event takes place at the Milton Keynes Rose, Campbell Park and is a chance to get involved in fun traditional May Day activities as well as hands-on seasonal crafts.

There will be Morris dancing from all-female side Queen’s Oak, who are famed for their performances of traditional English and modern dances. Live music will come from Sloop Groggy Dogs, the all-male singing group whose sea shanties will shiver anyone’s timbers!

Aimee Tidman from The Parks Trust said, “The all-important Maypole will, of course, be a key feature on the day with local youngsters from Great Linford Primary School showing us how it’s done before we invite willing members of the public to have a go too!

“For anyone who prefers to sit out the dancing, there will be a chance to make seasonal crafts, do creative activities with MK Gallery, plant sunflower seeds to take home or sit back and enjoy the classic swing boats provided by Keith Emmett & Sons – all for free! On top of all that, there’s going to be fish and chips from Howe and Co., drinks from the Really Awesome Coffee company and an ice cream cart so there’s everything needed for a perfect afternoon out. We look forward to seeing lots of people there.”

There’s no need to book – simply show up on the day and join in the fun.  For more information, visit The Parks Trust website
