Maypole Dance Tradition at The Bishops Palace
Friday 8th May at 2:30pm
The May Bank Holiday has been moved from the traditional Monday to Friday 8th May this year by the government, in order to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day. The Maypole dancing will start at 2:30pm on 8th May. Pupils from St Joseph and St Teresa’s school will get the opportunity to show everyone the dances that they have been working so hard on. Lindsey Ashworth, who has been teaching the children their routines says "The children work very hard practising this traditional dance style and were unlucky enough to have the event rained off last year! This year we will have our current country dancers and some returning country dancers from last year taking part. St Joseph and St Teresa’s are proud to be continuing this popular tradition in the city of Wells."
