Booking Essential: No

Description: The Wessex Morris have been greeting the sunrise on 1st May for decades. The event takes place on the Trendle, a square earth-banked enclosure above the Giant's head, where there used to be a maypole. In recent years they have been joined by Cerne Abbas Brewery who give glasses of ale to thirsty revellers. This year we hope it will be an ale brewed during the Festival. The traditional spring tonic nettles will be the special ingredient! For both this and the Wessex Morris event below there is no charge but a hat is passed around for donations to Wessex Morris. Please let us know you saw us on What's On in Dorset!
