Midsummer Tree Celebrations

Not strictly a Worthing Downlanders event, but we join with others for a Midsummer Celebration.

It is customary to meet at the Cricketers pub beforehand for a drink or two!

It is then just a short walk across the Green to the tree (Near the Grove Lodge Roundabout), where folk songs are recited whilst dancing around the tree.


This tree, believed to be over 300 years old, was once celebrated in local folklore. Every year, at midnight on Midsummers Eve, it was believed that skeletons would rise up from its roots and dance to the rattling of their own bones until daybreak.





Saturday 13th September:
Findon Sheep Fair

October:
Foraging walk in association with Worthing Transition Town. Date TBA
