It is not a secret that every nation and every country has its
own customs and traditions. In Great Britain people attach
greater importance to traditions and customs than in other
European countries. Some of them are strange but they are
loved, not only in the UK but around the world.
Cooper's Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake
This competition is held on
Cooper’s Hill, not far from
Gloucester on the last Monday
of May. Under the rules of the
competition round head cheese
falls down the slope, after which
participants begin its pursuit.
The winner is the one who first
catch up and grab the
“runaway” cheese.
Straw Bear Festival
This tradition is held on the 7th
of January. People believe that
the new agricultural year begins
on this day. A man puts on a
straw suit and goes from house
to house and dance. As a reward
people give him money or food.
On Sunday the main event is a
burning straw “skins” bear.
Ascot Ladies Day
The Ascot is a famous
English racecourse. It is
interesting that on the third
day of the race Ladies Day
is organized. On this day,
ladies wear elegant clothes
with the most amazing hats
to inspire riders to sports
achievements.
Egremont Crab Fair
On the third Saturday of
September in Egremont passes
Egremont Crab Fair. On this day
various competitions are held:
climbing on a dirty pole to get a
leg of lamb, the parade of apple
carts, competition for the most
ugly face, where participants put
their head through a horse
collar and shows the most ugly
faces.
Pearly King and Queen
Several times a year the choice
of the King and Queen Mother
of pearl is held. This charitable
tradition is since 1875. It is
associated with Henry Croft,
an orphan street sweeper, who
collected money for charity.
Donations collected that day
will go to the fund to help the
homeless.
Morris Dancing
It is a form of English folk
dance usually accompanied
by music. Morris named after
the region of origin. At the
heart of the dance movements
are rhythmic steps. As

and rattles picture legendary
heroes.
Bog Snorkelling Championships
This competition takes place
in the small Welsh town
of Llanwrtyd Wells from
1976. Participants have to
swim two lengths of a 60yard bog drain with glasses,
flippers and snorkel for
diving. The money goes to
charity.
The Ravens of the Tower
At least six ravens must
reside in the Tower of
London. Charles II issued a
special decree by which the
crows had to be protected
with the utmost care. The
king said: “If the crows
disappear, the crown will
fall, and England with her”.
Since then, the crow on the
tower
officially
listed
among the soldiers of the
nation.
Worm Charming

worms. The beginning of such
events associated with the name
of a local resident Tom

(from “mustache” and
“November”). Annually in

streets of Notting Hill every
August for 2 days. The first
carnival was held in 1964.

see colorful floats and dancers
in bright costumes, hear music
from salsa to reggae, and taste
Caribbean food from street
stalls.
Shrove Tuesday or ‘Pancake Day’
The history of Shrove Tuesday
goes to 1445. They say that one
citizen has forgotten about the
holiday service and rushed out
into the street wearing an apron
with a frying pan, on which lay
a pancake. In this day a lot of
fun and humorous competitions
are held. But the culmination of
the holiday is the traditional
“pancake race”.
The Conclusion
We can talk about traditions
and customs of the UK very
long, but the conclusion will
be
one.
The
British
remember the traditions of
their ancestors and try to
observe them in all.
Although some customs are
very similar to ours ones,
they have their originality
and uniqueness.
