PICTURE SLIDESHOW: Hayfield May Queen celebrations were out of this world!

Hayfield’s May Queen celebrations were out of this world! Young and old descended upon the picturesque village for Saturday’s event, which this year boasted a space theme.

Spencer Wilding, who has appeared in the hit TV show Dr Who, and Star Wars actress Pam Rose were on hand to answer questions and sign autographs.

And crowds were wowed by a wonderful parade featuring this year’s May Queen royalty and a variety of colourful foot characters and floats.

Organiser Zoe Wild said: “It was a brilliant day with a fantastic atmosphere and a great turnout.

“We’d like to thank everyone who helped make it happen and everyone who attended on the day.

“The special guests helped make this year’s event even more exciting and we’re already looking forward to next year’s celebrations.”

The event is now in its 88th year.
