Paulina Fojuth

Paulina Fojuth of Upper Caldecote is to be crowned as this year’s May Queen at the Ickwell May Day festival on Monday, 6th May.
Paulina will be supported by Holly Maudlin, who will present the garland, and Rhiannon Stratford, who will present the sceptre.
The May Day festival will start with the procession of dancers gathering in the grounds of the Crown Public House, Northill at 1 pm and travelling from Northill to Ickwell led by the Bedford Morris Men, before the crowning of the May Queen and dancing round the maypole takes place. The May Queen will be presented with a garland, sceptre and crown, all decorated with flowers, and will be given a locket by former May Queen – Heidi Smith (nee Baker), who was May Queen in 1993 – as a remembrance of the day.
The crowning ceremony is followed by a spectacular display of dancing, and just over the road are stalls and sideshows with crafts and gifts for visitors to buy as well as excellent refreshments including home-made cakes in the village hall. See visitor information for more details.

Past May Queens

The photo gallery page includes archival photographs of most of the past May Queens going back to 1911.

The passage of time has reduced the quality of some of the older shots, but most of the participants are readily recognisable.
