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 this year's fest. Thanks to all the sides that visited , danced, played in the band and pulled the cart.
