jimL Padstow - What Actually Happens? (4) Padstow - What Actually Happens? 06 Mar 05

There is endless discussion here and elsewhere about the topic of blacking up with specific reference to Padstow "Darkie Days", however, so far as I can see there is no decent description in a single place of what actually happens for those of us who live in the benighted north and elsewhere.

So - what happens on Darkie Days - *exactly* what do people wear, *exactly* what words do people sing?

I don't want to start another long thread of opinion and inference - I want know what *actually* happens - I've never been.

Gimme the facts, and then I might develop an opinion, rather than doing the reverse ;-)
