|Where:||Moulton, Northants - Crowning at Public Gardens followed by Procession|
|When:||Weekend in mid May (weekend preceding Spring Bank Holiday Weekend)|
Moulton in Northamptonshire is the setting each May for a traditional village festival involving dance, processions and a decorated May Cart to convey the May Queen around the streets. The May Queen is crowned on Saturday at 10.15 and the May Cart processes around the village until noon. Morris sides from around the country travel to take part, so expect plenty of music and dancing -the local Moulton Morris Men are particularly sprightly and vigorous . There are also concerts, stalls and other entertainments – the main day is the Saturday but there is also more dancing on Sunday and a chariot race.
Look out for the village sign depicting the May Cart and Morris Men (by the village carpark)
It takes place on the weekend preceding Spring Bank Holiday Weekend so is around the middle of the month. In 2017 it will be on Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st May .
