Folklore and Custom in the East Midlands

May 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for this entertaining, online, talk which describes a year in the life of the East Midlands folklore calendar – from mob-football games, to Maypole dances and Mummers plays. Special attention will be given to the famous Castleton Garland Celebration, which traditionally takes place on the date of the talk. Our speaker Dave Mooney will incorporate singing and puppetry, as well as a wealth of personal experiences and anecdotes, to illustrate the living traditions that are covered. A fun and interesting learning experience!
Tickets cost £5 for members and £7 for non-members in our shop. If this isn’t the first time you’ve paid a bit more why don’t you become a member!
