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

This year the visiting morris sides were Bampton Traditional, Belle D'Vain , Chelmsford, Mortimers, and Queens Oak

Here are some pictures from the 2024 weekend:
