Moulton Village Festival

 

Every year in mid May, Moulton Village hosts its annual Village Festival.  Moulton Morris have always been closely associated with the

ancient custom of crowning a May Queen and every year Morris sides from all over the country arrive to decorate the May Cart with flowers

and form the procession round the village up to the crowning ceremony. In addition, there are stalls, concerts , dancing displays and other

activities throughout the weekend. Here are some pics from 2018's fest.   The 2019 festival will have seven guest morrris sides: 

Rose & Castle, Belle D'Vain. Chinewrde, Brackley, Queen's Oak, Windsor & Northampton.  

Headlining the Folk Concert on Friday are Chris While & Julie Matthews.
