Mummers, Maypoles and Milkmaids: A Journey through the English Ritual Year
© Sara Hannant
An exhibition in the Balcony Gallery of around 50 photographs of regional rituals performed through the year. Documenting events from Cornwall to Northumberland, Sara Hannant's photographs chronicle the many costumed processions, symbolic dramatisations, traditional dances and fire ceremonies that, since ancient times, have marked the changing seasons and celebrated nature's bounty. Included are traditions like Jack-in-the-Green, the Carshalton Straw Jack and the Abbots Bromley Horn Dance.
