Cambridge Morris Men very kindly came to Mayfield to demonstrate some molly dances to the children on Plough Monday (13th January).   Plough Monday is the first Monday after Twelfth Night and in East Anglia was traditionally marked by ploughboys (who would be short of work at this time of year) dressing up and collecting money from the neighbourhood.  People who did not give money might wake up the next day to a  ploughed up garden – an early form of Trick or Treat!  The ploughboys were accompanied by molly dancers who would dress up in bright ribbons and be led in their dances by a ‘Lord and Lady’ – two of the men suitably dressed up.  There is some more information in the news section of the Cambridge Morris Men website:  Cambridge Morris Men
