2020 MAY QUEEN FESTIVAL

IS NOW CANCELLED

Festival Location

The May Queen Festival is a family friendly event that celebrates the many villages within the Hodder Valley.

The festival starts at St. Andrew's Church, Slaidburn (Church Street, BB7 3ER) at 12.30 pm.  The new and retiring May Queens and their retinues, then follow the Slaidburn Silver Band along the streets of Slaidburn.  During the procession we visit Rock House as the Squire of the village, Anthea and Kerry Hodson hand out 50 pence coins to the children involved in the festival.  After that, the procession heads down to Slaidburn Village Hall and Green (Chapel Street, BB7 3ES) for the May Queen crowning (inside Church if it is raining), entertainment, refreshments, games and competitions.

Festival Supporters

We are lucky to be supported by a great many volunteers who work hard to make our festival a success each year!  We are grateful for the support we receive from the local community for donations of raffle prizes, which they do so generously.   

Without this support, the May Queen Festival could not continue...

A very big thank you to the Slaidburn Estate, Anthea and Kerry Hodson, and Slaidburn and Easington Parish Council for their support.

Below is a list of supporters who contribute either by performing in the festival, by providing a service, or by supporting us financially.  Thank you to all!
