FOLLOWING the hugely successful revival of Cowslip Sunday in recent years, the event returns on Sunday 6 May 2012.

Proceedings kick off with the opening of the Cowslip Arts and Crafts Fair in Lambley Village Hall at 12.00 noon. This runs until 4.00pm, with 20 or so stalls offering a wide range of high quality products for sale.

The procession starts around 2pm, with a variety of colourful characters, led by our local hero Lambley Jack, following the Cowslip banner through the delightful village of Lambley, Nottinghamshire.

Meanwhile, in the Lambley Dumbles, a new development for 2012 is called Poetry Seen. Snatches of verse, written by everyone from Shakespeare to the children at the local school, are displayed on banners in the charming rustic setting of Lambley’s trademark geological features.

Much attention will focus on the outdoor play, which is performed once and once only on Farmer Dickie’s stage behind the village hall. This year’s panto-esque production is called Lambley Jack and the Golden Stockings, and provides family entertainment for all. Oh yes it does.

Attendance at the fair, watching the procession, viewing the poetry in the dumbles, and seeing the play, are all free for everybody.

Cowlsip Sunday 2012 rounds off with the now-legendary Cowslip Ceilidh, held in the village hall from 7.30pm until late. Tickets available on the door – first come, first served – at £4 adults, children free.
