Lichfield District Council’s park rangers are hosting a Victorian May Day at Museum Gardens in Beacon Park on Monday 4 May, between 11am and 3pm.

The May Day celebrations will include maypole dancing workshops and a range of traditional games, including a coconut shy.

A highlight of the day will be a traditional Punch and Judy show at 12.30pm.

Neil Turner, Lichfield District Council’s Director of Leisure & Parks, said: “Last year’s May Day festivities were really popular, and we hope even more people will join us for this vintage event, enjoying all the activities on offer.”

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