The Wolverhampton May Day Committee was established in 1994, as a result of the threats of a previous Conservative government to abolish May Day in Britain and replace it with a nationalistic holiday.
Since our workers` holiday has been celebrated again in Wolverhampton it has gone from strength to strength and is now probably the most popular West Midlands event.
