Long Preston May Day Gala


We play a big part in the village's May Day Gala, which has been running for over 45 years and takes place on the first Saturday of May. All pupils take part in traditional country dances and maypole dancing demonstrations on the Maypole Green in the heart of the village. Volunteers from the community organise the attractions on the day. The tradition of having a May Queen crowned is a big part of the village heritage, and most of the young ladies that have taken this roll have also previously attended the school.
