Marsden Cuckoo Day
This annual celebration welcomes the return of the cuckoo to Marsden with artistic workshops, an all-day craft fair, banner-making, a village procession, maypole and Morris dancing for two days. Friday night culminates in a folk evening at the Riverhead.
Marsden's love for this feathered friend stemmed from the fact that the spring and sunshine always came along with its arrival. In days gone by, the people of the village reputedly built a huge wall to try to prolong the cuckoo's visit. Special events for children take place throughout Saturday.
