Padstow, a fishing village on the coast of Cornwall, celebrates May Day with an ancient custom: two osses (hobby-horses) dance through the town streets accompanied by drums and accordions….
Watched this, by chance, on the 1st of May. Lovely ritual and one I had
never heard of before. Thanks for posting.
They knew how to get into it then; some of the videos I’ve just watched of
their Mayday now are tame in comparison. Culture is fascinating sometimes.
Also, when I used to drink, that’s exactly how I’d dance, heh.
