Spring Festival

Our village holds a festival every May, that is a mixture of folk music, morris dancing, entertainment and participation.  This year the weather was not kind. Some sunny moments but a cold wind, rain and a tremendous hailstorm with hail the size of small pebbles.  This meant the field was muddy and slippy. This meant that some of the Morris and Sword dancing had to be postponed.

Nevertheless, it didn't stop the music, the beer swigging, ice-cream eating and lots of food from candy floss to chips being consumed.  Children disregarded the weather and had a good time on the fairground rides.

Some of the music was free to listen to. Grab a beer and sit and enjoy. Other events were ticketed and held on site or in venues around the village.

The Morris dancers and bands gathered around the pubs. Always popular venues whatever the weather!  http://www.shepleyspringfestival.co.uk/
