Sometimes you have to just give-in and shelter from the rain in the Draymans!

Dancing the Sun up on May Day Morning

Well may day is here, and we danced at sun up!! Sutton Masque danced their first may day by dancing the sun rise at Stonea Camp a 500 BC hill fort in the Fens, a staggering 6 foot 5 inches above sea level making this the lowest hill fort in the country. So if it’s not a high tide we will happily dance the sun rise on this very special day every year! Happy May Day to you all!

 

We then went up the road for a lovely breakfast provided but Angela and Roger – thank you very much for your hospitality.
