Worthing Downlanders Remaining Events 2014
(Details to follow and more events may be added at a later date)
Midsummer Tree Celebration
Date: Monday June 23rd, 10pm
Venue: Starting at the Cricketers Pub, Broadwater Green,
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
Foraging walk in association with Worthing Transition Town.
