People in rochester high street celebrating sweeps festival

The 40th Anniversary of Sweeps Festival is back in Rochester, with Oliver’s kicking off the festival with a bang.

This international celebration of folk music and dance has become one of the largest May Day celebrations of its kind in the world. For three days historic Rochester is transformed into a riot of colour and sound with the best musicians and bands on the folk circuit and hundreds of Morris dancers from across the country clattering their clogs and clashing their sticks up and down the high street.
