Ritual spoiled by small stage

THE May Day ritual was sadly diminished by its performance in a small cordoned off space, thronged by clamorous camera wavers.

I expect many mourn the loss of the intimate and organic ritual in the castle, but if it has to continue on the West Hill, might not the stage be made slightly larger; so that Jack and the Morris dancers could both use it and at least people would see what is going on?
