Living the mythic life

May Day in Chagford, art by Virginia Lee

If you're anywhere near Dartmoor on Friday, come help us celebrate May Day in Chagford with a traditional "Jack in the Green" procession, with music by Andy Letcher and friends. Also, if you're an early riser, May Day starts with a sunrise dance up at Haytor by the spooky and wonderful Beltane Border Morris troupe.

Beltane celebrations are making a come-back in Britain, and for those of us for whom myth and folklore are the staff of life, this is good news indeed. The art in the beautiful poster above is by Virginia Lee.
