May Day Celebrations

Time/Date - 10:00 - 17:00, Mon 1 May 2017

Experience all the fun of a traditional May Day.

Children and the Basket Weaver at the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum

Have a go at stripping the willow in preparation for our Basket Maker to weave into traditional baskets and then get your feet tapping to the music of the traditional Strip the Willow set dance in the Parochial Hall.

Watch the new season's butter being churned in the Rural Area but beware of the Butter Witch as you walk along the country lanes! Enjoy story telling and tasting seasonal food. 

Pictured above is one of the museum's Basket Makers demonstrating this traditional craft activity.
