Knutsford Royal May Day 2009 - 145th year


Royal May Day in Knutsford is an annual event which dates back to 1864. The modern day festivals still recreate the customs upon which it is based, including unique traditions such as 'sanding' the streets. May Day in Knutsford earned its 'Royal' title in 1887 courtesy of the then Prince and Princess of Wales and today attracts thousands of visitors every year. This year Katie Smith was crowned Knutsford's Royal May Queen. Ladies in Waiting, Emily Bowcock and Hazel Redhead along with the Court Ladies, Amy Kemshed, Hannah Cotton, Rebecca Humphreys and Olivia Weatherby took part in the crowning ceremony. Ben Sanders , had the honour of carrying the crown taking part as Crown Bearer for this year.
