May Day

Various May Day bits and pieces going on tomorow. As well as the Jack in the Green in Borough (see below), there's the May Day demonstration from Clerkenwell Green (12) to Trafalgar Square, with music promised at the end, plus a surpize EuroMayDay event at a location to be announced at the last minute.

Tomorrow night there's some kind of May Day social at Moonbow Jakes in Brockley. Not sure exactly what's happpening, but it will include the Strawberry Thieves Socialist Choir and I have been asked to come along and say a few words about the origins of May Day. Starts around 8.

There's also a May Day anti-racist music night in Catford at the Power-league Sports Club, Canadian Avenue with Eternity Sound System.

If you don't mind heading even further South and East on Monday, there's a May Day festival in Whitstable complete with May pole, jack in the green, etc.

Mm, sorry to have missed the MAy Day event at Moonbows but I was very, very tired after going out with the Jack.

Missed the Borough High Street Jack in the Green but did see his Whitstable counterpart yesterday, accompanied by various morris types, including the Dead Horse Morris featuring a horse's skull on a stick.
