Beacon Park’s Victorian May Day

Victorian May Day

Victorian May Day

Head to Museum Gardens on May Day to enjoy all the vintage activities on offer.

Lichfield District Council’s park rangers are hosting a Victorian May Day at Museum Gardens in Beacon Park on Monday 5 May, between 11am and 2pm.

The May Day celebrations will include maypole dancing workshops, a coconut shy, croquet, hoopla, a Victorian flower cone workshop and possibly Victorian swing boats.

A traditional Punch and Judy Show will also take place from 12 noon to 1pm on the day, which has been part funded by Chandlers Cafe.

Councillor Andy Smith, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure & Parks, said:
“We hope plenty of people join us for our Victorian May Day event, and enjoy all the activities on offer.”

Thanks to the new Decades Vintage Boutique, which is set to open on St John’s Street in June, the park rangers will be dressed in Victorian costume throughout the day.

It is free to come along to the Victorian May Day event, although there will be a small charge for some of the activities.
