Bramley Carnival, Maypole Dancing
Undated. View shows a group of children taking part in Maypole dancing at a Bramley Carnival some time around the late 19th or early 20th centuries. Many schools took part in this, a regular activity at the Carnival during that period when the event was held in early May every year. It is believed that it was held at this early time in the year to coincide with the Feast Day of St. Margaret, to whom the old Bramley church was dedicated. When the Carnival was revived in the 1970s it took place in June.
