The Barwick-in-Elmet maypole festival has attracted plenty of attention from the press over the years, and we’ve posted a selection of recent on-line articles in this section.

Please send us the details using the contact form (and if possible include a link to the site where the article appears) and we will endeavour to include the story on the site.

Please note that some of the articles featured may be inconsistent or contain inaccuracies (the height of the maypole being one example). We would positively encourage journalists to contact the Trust committee directly with any questions (using the contact form).
