Lichfield District Council’s parks team is hosting a Victorian May Day event at Museum Gardens in Beacon Park on Monday 1st May, between 11am and 3pm.
The May Day celebrations will offer visitors the chance to join in maypole dancing, make peg dolls, have their faces painted and try range of traditional games, including a coconut shy, hoopla and croquet.
A highlight of the day will be a free 30-minute Punch and Judy show at 12.30pm. To warm up the crowd, the puppeteer will wander around Museum Gardens to introduce his hand puppets to the audience.
Councillor Andy Smith, Cabinet Member for Leisure & Parks, said: “Visiting a picturesque park in the heart of the city and taking part in, or simply watching, the traditional activities is the perfect way to celebrate May Day and Staffordshire 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.
If you need a break from all that fun why not visit Lakeside Bistro? Perfect for people of all ages, they serve up a delicious menu of food and drinks as well.
