May Day will have a distinctly Victoria flavour in Lichfield this year.

Museum Gardens in Beacon Park will feature maypole dancing workshops, a coconut shy, croquet and hoopla between 11am and 2pm.

A traditional Punch and Judy Show will also take place from 12noon.

Councillor Andy Smith, Lichfield District Council’s cabinet member for leisure and parks, said: “We hope plenty of people join us for our Victorian May Day event, and enjoy all the activities on offer.”

It is free to attend the event, although there will be a small charge for some of the activities.
