The Mayday Black Prince Festivalhttp://www.blackprinceatrame.co.uk/history.htmlCeltic and Pagan origins have been adapted over the course of time. Those taking part are encouraged to wear traditional clothes - men in white smocks and top hats, with large buttonholes of white flowers, and ladies in long white dresses with red ribbons, sashes, and red flowers in garlands and in their hair.A Flower Boat called the Black Prince is carried in a procession held on May Bank Holiday (a national holiday on the 1st Monday in May) through the local villagesThe event is seen as symbolically marking the death of winter, with the launch of the boat in Cawsand Bay carrying the dead season away.Now it is only the children who wear red and white clothing (not a specific traditional costume) for May Pole dancing and the procession

Morris DancingThis is a very ancient form of dance some say its a form of fertility rites which are based on Moorish dances spreading up through Spain and into Europe in medieval times.Several versions of Morris dance exist and are characterised by the white or sometimes black clothing with bells tied around the shins or on the shoes. Hankies/ribbons and sticks are held in the hands.There are groups of Morris dancing enthusiasts all over England. 10 different groups involved in the local Black Prince festival

Tartan a type of fabric used in traditional costume in the UKThe CORNISH TARTAN is relatively new possibly only being patented around 30 year ago, although other versions of the cloth existed for over 100 years. This particular tartan consists of only 4 colours, Yellow representing the gorseflower which is always in bloom in Cornwall. Black which is the colour of tin ore, cassiterite, once commonly found in Cornwall. Blue is the sea which surrounds the county.Red/orange is for the legs of the Cornish bird the CHOUGH.
The difference between Cornish and Scottish Tartan is that the Cornish Tartan is specific to the County and area whereas the Scottish Tartan is extremely varied and each one specific to a particular family name or clan.
Scottish TartanThe SCOTTISH TARTAN kilt dates back before the 1500s when the first of these items of dress was just a plain piece of material worn over the shoulder as a cloak. It became fashionable through the Scottish author Sir Walter Scotts novels and then by Queen Victoria, who was a great admirer of anything Scottish, in the mid 1800s.Both Cornish and Scottish tartan kilts are worn for ceremonial occasions, weddings etc.THE SPORRANThe name is Scottish/Gaelic for purse and this is exactly what it is. This is a traditional part of the male Scottish Highland dress. It performs the same function as pockets on the pocketless Scottish Kilt. It is made of either leather or fur and worn on a leather strap or chain around the top of the hips.
