Join us as we greet the Spring with traditional May Day celebrations at Mary Arden's Farm.

See Palmer’s Farm decorated with beautiful May blossom, watch the May Day feast being prepared and help to decorate Jack-in-the-green by weaving ivy into our willow frame.

Become part of the parade to bring in the May pole and join in with the Tudor dancing before we crown the May King and Queen. Be sure to make a flower head garland or Jack-in-the-green mask to take home with you too!

These events are included as part of normal admission, so if you already have a valid ticket you can come along for free!
