THERE will be dancing in the streets of Callington on May 10 as the town celebrates its second Mayfest and everything Celtic!

Last year's inaugural event was a great success with a piece of music written especially for the Callington Furry Dance which is a smaller version of the Helston Flora Dance.

Men, women and children danced through the town and joined in a number of traditional Cornish dances in the town centre whilst a number of side events took place including a beer festival, which is set to be repeated this year in the Bull's Head pub.

The day has been organised by Callington arts organisation CAVE and includes even more entertainment this year from 12.30pm to the wee small hours!

Event co-ordinator Peter Watson said: 'Last year's first Mayfest was brilliant and exceeded our expectations. We would like even more people to join in this simple dance in 2014 and really enjoy themselves.

'The Portreeve Denise Winfindale will lead the procession through the town together with Callington Town Band and the town crier Tony Stentiford.

'To get everyone in the mood we are running some dance and music evenings tomorrow (April 4) and on April 25 and May 2 in the town hall.'

Dances will be taught by Carmen Hunt and local musicians can come and play for the dancing. Rosie Fierek of the Calstock Rubber Band, who wrote the furry dance music, will once again lead the musicians.

A Breton dancing group are taking part and they will be giving a demonstration as part of the evening's event in the town hall featuring the Cornish band 'Dalla'.

Cornish dance group Hevva will be dressed as ball maidens with special bonnets representing different areas of Cornwall. The Plymouth Morris men, Plymouth Maids clog dancers and Wreckers Border Morris group will all be there and a specially commissioned Maypole street dance will be performed by Callington College students.

A new addition will be a storyteller who will be coming along with puppets telling Cornish tales and appearing in the town's tea shops.

There will also be live music in the Bull's Head from 4pm to 6pm.
