      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Every May in the village of Downton, five miles from Salisbury, is the village of Downton. It has it's yearly crowning of The May Queen; the next one will be on Saturday 1st May 2005 10am-4pm. There are many events leading up to this family day out which is normally held on the village green in large white marquee's, it includes 250 craft stalls of local & rural traditions like jewellery, basket weaving, clothes, furniture & food like cake samples & jams. The tents tend to get rather warm with all that body heat mingling round, it can be a bit crowded too. There is also Maypole & Morris dancing, including line dancing & other displays. Street entertainment; Downton Brass Band; and plenty for the children including Punch and Judy, clowns, bouncy castle and roundabouts. I love the palmist's stalls, they charge £10 to have a reading of your hand, ther's also the rune stones & colour testing, plus Tarot. The roads tend to get rather clogged up during the day so It's best to get there early, through there is parking if you are quick enough. There are fairground rides with many people opening up their back garden's to serve tea & refreshments. Some of the houses in Downton are pretty with thatched roofs & ornamental gardens, many of the gardens have the river running through. http://www.cuckoofair.com for more information.
