They will be serving drinks seasoned with sweet woodruff, the vanilla-scented herb traditionally used in Eastern Europe to bring in the summer. There'll be frolicking and fun, the crowning of the May Queen and a visit from the Green Man - a mythical personification of the forest. At sunset, they will be burning a real wicker man.
