Morris Men start early to give May Day some stick

First published in News

Marvellous Morris dancers entertained crowds to celebrate May Day.

The Brighton Morris Men proved early risers when they embarked on a day of jigging and dancing across Brighton and Hove.

The costume-clad troupe danced before sunrise at Hollingbury Camp, just off the golf course in Ditchling Road, before travelling to various schools in and around Brighton.

After a spot of lunch in the Brighton Tavern, they were pictured in full swing in Pavilion Gardens.

May Day is celebrated in various countries across the globe as a traditional springtime festival and, for some a time to remember workers of the world.

Its origins date back to Saxon England.

Oh joy! Please let us know when they are next jumping up and down, looking silly and waving sticks so we can give them a wide berth.
