Held on the first Monday after the beginning of May the Celebrations start as the demonstration assembles outside the Chesterfield Town Hall on Rose Hill. At eleven o’clock the march moves off through the town arriving at New Square for the Rally. The afternoon is full of activities and entertainment celebrating international workers day.
New Square in Chesterfield is brought to life by music and dancing and the market stalls are taken over by community and campaigning organisation. Come to Chesterfield and join in the celebrations on May Day.
The Chesterfield & District Trades Council would like to thank all the organisations that give their
support to the May Day Gala.
Thanks go to the many scores of volunteers. Their solidarity and hard work in organizing May
Day ensures the event runs smoothly.
The Chesterfield May Day Gala does great credit to the
capacity of the Trade Union and Labour Movements to campaign, inform and entertain.
We also thank our speakers for their support and contributions, the many organisations
whose involvement gives May Day the breadth of popular appeal which it enjoys, and we thank you for attending and supporting May Day, maintaining its status as the largest and most popular May Day event in the region, if not the country.
