Folk Museum set for May Day Celebrations
Published: 23 April 2010
May Day Celebrations will be in full swing at the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum on Monday 3rd May with traditional music and dance performances taking place throughout the museum.
Slip on your dancing shoes and take part in set dances to traditional Irish music in the Parochial Hall, or visit the Basket Maker at his workshop to see the willow being stripped for use in creating beautiful baskets.
Beware of the Butter Witch as you make your way through the Rural Area of the museum to see how butter was churned in the 1900’s and don’t forget to visit the Fairy Thorn on your way back to Ballycultra Town.
Ruth Turkington Visitor Services Manager at the Folk Museum said the May Day celebrations will be fun for the whole family, “As visitors explore the exhibit buildings and stunning grounds of the Folk Museum they will be entertained by the ‘locals’ with traditional music, dancing, storytelling and baking, making it a truly 1900’s May Day event.”
In Ballycultra Town young visitors will be transported back to a simpler time, by playing street games once enjoyed by children in the early 1900’s.
The Folk Museum’s May Day Celebrations will take place from 10am to 5pm with more information available on our what's on pages.
