Chiltern Open Air Museum and The May Team

There have been major changes for the mAy team during 2020. They have purchased the large Maypole that was built for them to use at Countryfile Live and the Chiltern Open Air Museum have kindly provided a home for it setting up a whole new partnership.

The Museum is at Newland Park, Chalfont St Giles, Buckinghamshire HP8 4AB

There will be training events, displays and plenty of chances for everyone to join in. The Maypole may get used at other times including weddings, corporate events and hopefully as part of the Museum’s wonderful Education Programme. There may even be opportunities for some of the team to contribute a few of their individual teaching skills in other areas.

A lot of this is still at the planning stage and we will be working with the Museum to conform to Covid regulations but we are hoping to install the Maypole during March before the Museum Season starts and have sessions there on the weekend of 15/16 May and 18/19 September.

As things progress we very much hope to participate in more events and look forward to a fruitful partnership between the two organisations.
