Subject: RE: Folklore: Now tis first of May
In Brighton, up at the Hill Fort, dawn was wet and windy.
One dance each from Brighton Morris men and their ladies side (Cuckoos Nest) a couple of songs and the traditional walk round the earth ramparts.
After that Breakfast in the All Night Diner.
It was done in traditional fashion but spoilt by the poor weather. I am told that in 25 years there have only been 3 non sunny dawns on Mayday.
Glad I did it and will probably do it again.
