The May Queen is crowned by the Mayor of Brackley. Despite very mixed weather, with some heavy showers and a cold wind, a good crowd turned up to see the May Queen, enjoy the Dog Show, Morris Dancing, Maypole Dancing and listen to live music in the courtyard by Pete Watkins and in the Great Hall by Donna and the Delleretts.
More pictures on the next page.
Looking forward to the Dog Show
