Amidst a flurry of activity for May Day 2011 I gave a talk on it at South East London Folklore Society (Old Kings Head, SE1) and also, briefly, at a Lewisham Anti Cuts Alliance event at the then occupied ex-Job Centre on Deptford High Street. A nice mix, as one of the themes of the text is the way that the seasonal 'green' elements of May Day have been intertwined with the radical 'red' elements over the years.
I also did the rounds of various May Day related activities, including the opening of the Brixton Windmill, which featured a May Queen on May 2 2011:
And the Deptford Jack in the Green procession through Greenwich on May Day itself:
I also went on the Cool Tan May Day walk from Tate Modern to Camberwell Green on May 21st 2011.
Elsewhere there were May Queens in Petts Wood, Orpington and at Hayes Common in the borough of Bromley.
At St George's Roman Catholic Cathedral in Southwark, up to 2,000 people from all over the world took part in the annual Mass for Migrants on May 2 2011- May Day also being marked as the Feast of St Joseph the Worker.
