Helston Town is the most southerly town of England. Positioned on the Lizard Peninsular, south Cornwall, Helston is home to one of the oldest traditions, taking place on 8th May every year, The Furry Dance, also known as Flora Day.

Dating back to the early 1800s, the day is in celebration of passing the Winter and starting the Spring. The traditional flower is worn, Lily of the Valley, on each ladies dress and on men’s shirts. The Flower is known to be the symbolic flower of Helston.  The Furry Dance takes place 4 times during the day. The Morning Dance, Children’s Dance, Midday Dance and Evening Dance. Hal-an-Tow remains a mysterious and historical themed dance, enacting the evil vs good through song and dance chants.

Flora Day is filled with market stalls, fun fair and the joining of local schools, tradition and community. To know Flora Day well, you need to speak to a true Helstonian!
