The Castleton Garland Day
The Castleton Garland Day, also referred to as Garland King Day, is an annual event that comes on 29 May every year, though the event is often moved to Saturday if the actual date falls on a Sunday. The Garland King dresses in a heavy, bell-shaped garland made of flowers and leads the procession while riding on a horse.
The day begins with the construction of the garland, a process that takes almost half a day. Later in the afternoon, the Garland King is accompanied by his female consort dressed in Stuart costume. The event is concluded with a maypole dance at the marketplace as the queen’s posy is placed on the war memorial. After the ceremony, visitors accompany villagers as they dance the Criss-Cross back to their homes.
