What the average Englishman does at weekends ......

6 posts in this topic

The Rochester Sweeps Festival, Mayday weekend 2017. More than 50 Sweeps, Dead Horse, Green man, Morris and folk dance and song groups perform along the Dickensian High st, Around Rochester Cathedral Green, the Castle green and in Rochester Castle grounds. Retro clothes and steam punk also have a strong following at the festival. At dawn on Mayday on nearby Blueberry hill there is a ceremony to welcome the May where they burn virgins and stuff.

If you live in the SE UK, make your calendar for next year Every year it bigger and better - and it's free! Lots of food and drink (not free) and a fair in the castle grounds.

Very nice.

People in costume in public are not photo-resistant and the 90 is perfect for isolating

individuals..
