* Required Fields

"In the month of May the citizens of all estates, generally in every parish, and in some instances two or three parishes joining together, had their several mayings, and did fetch their maypoles with divers warlike shows; with good archers, morrice-dancers, and other devices for pastime, all day long; and towards evening they had stage-plays and bonfires in the streets."
So wrote John Stow in his Survey of London of 1598, giving an Elizabethan Englishman's view of the festivities which attended the first day of May as far back as the Celtic celebrations of Beltane (which marked the first day of summer).
