Ampthill Park - At 5.20am on 1st May each year Redbornstoke Morris and Bedfordshire Lace dance in celebration of May Day at Catherine's Cross before adjourning to The Old Sun for breakfast. Though both morris sides are revivals, neither has overlooked the fact that the folk tradition is a living and changing one. Bedfordshire Lace dances a unique version of "Ilmington" and Redbornstoke dances "Ampthill" in the summer and "Marston Moretaine" in the winter - both created by themselves. For more details see their web-site.
