If you've wondered what happens at Summer Court during Summerpole (i.e. during lunch), well we have lunch and then each Side entertains the masses, at the command of the King or Queen (of the Summer Court). Obviously this is very high brow entertainment, cultural stuff such as singing or storytelling. Right up to the point that it's Pilgrim's turn, and we do... Nose Jousting. Blame Roger.
Hi Summerpolers, sincere thanks for a fantastic day today, and a fitting inauguration for our new summerpole. Considering a few days ago we didn't even have a summerpole, it went swimmingly well. A particular thanks to our guest Sides, Alton Morris, Ewell St Mary and Jackstraws, for helping to make it such a successful event. Considering the weather (it was freezing cold) there were lots of people in the audiences, which always helps, so thanks to everyone who came to watch. See you next year!
There are several short videos of Summerpole on BBC Surrey's twitter feed, just search for BBC Surrey and then scroll down until you find them. They are scattered about a bit, so keep looking!
