Lymm May Queen

Lymm May Queen
Event start date
1 day

2023 May Queen date is Saturday 13th May 2023.

The 2023 procession will be starting at 12:00 midday - Brookfield Road > Eagle Brow > Village Centre > Pepper Street & the field.

The May Queen field will be open from 10:00 to 17:00hrs e.g. 2 hours before the procession.  There will be re-entry to the field to allow people to come and go.


Expect the village centre to be VERY busy for the procession passing through. Brookfield Road & Eagle Brow usually have more space to view the procession.

Please consider grabbing a coffee / ice cream / lunch or dinner from one of the village centre businesses on the day - and returning to the May Queen field of course!

Lymm Radio were broadcasting live from the village centre / May Queen field in 2022 from midday till 15:00hrs - Steph & Rob battled the technical challenges & background noise to broadcast events from the village centre & field - Lymm Radio are still to confirm for 

Note that there is a new Team managing the May Queen event for 2023, and timings have changed slightly from previous years.
