ANNUAL CHEESE ROLLING EVENT
Brave runners risk their necks as
they chase a rolling cheese down a
hill in a traditional contest. The
Cheese Rolling at Cooper's Hill in
Brockworth, Gloucestershire, is an
old custom thought to be part of an
old fertility rite celebrating Spring
and Summer. The object is to catch
the rolling cheese but as it travels
as fast as a car the prize is given to
whoever reaches the finish line
first. The winner of the chase gets
to keep the prize of a seven to eight
pound Double Gloucester cheese.
MAY DANCING
Dancing around a pole is a traditional
dance in Western Europe, especially in
England, Sweden and Germany. The
dancers walk in a circle, holding colored
ribbons tied to a pole. Dancers can
begin to move in the opposite direction
in order to unravel the ribbon. Dancing
around the may pole is a very old
tradition, going back to the German
beliefs
associated
with
fertility.
Traditionally it takes place in spring,
usually in May, but in Sweden it is
celebrated in summer.
PEARLY KING HARVEST FESTIVAL
This festival is usually celebrated in the first
Sunday of October. Dating from the 19th
century, the Pearly Kings & Queens are a
much-loved Cockney tradition. It started
when a young boy covered a suit with pearly
buttons to attract attention and to raise
money for the poor at charity events and
fairs. Other boroughs were so impressed that
they got their own Pearly King or Queen.
The tradition continues to thrive today and
Pearly Kings and Queens can be seen in
their full spectacle at the annual Pearly
Kings and Queens Harvest Festival.
The annual Harvest Festival Service at the
church of St. Martin-in-the Fields offers a
spectacular display of historical London in all
its glory.
THE HORN DANCE
The ancient Horn Dance is an
annual event held traditionally
on the first Monday after the
first Sunday after September
4th! The famous Horn Dance is
performed by six Deer-men who
wear reindeer horns. The
dancers follow a 10 mile course
and perform the ritual in 12
different locations in and
around the village, whilst the
musician plays tunes such as
“The Farmers Boy” and “Uncle
Mick” on a melodeon, with
accompaniment
from
a
triangle.
LADIES DAY IN ASCOT
Ascot races - the famous English
races held every year in the small
town of Ascot. Royal Ascot Racecourt
is located just
few miles from
Windsor castle and therefore the
members of the Royal family and
other idle guests often come to
watch the event. The races usually
last 25 days. The most prestigious
races are considered to be the king
George VI and Queen Elizabeth,
which take place in July. The famous
tradition of Ascot are ladies who
come to
the Royal Hippodrome
wearing unique hats.
SWIMMING IN A SWAMP
Swimming in a swamp is
one of the most extravagant
competitions that are held in
England. People from all over
the world come to swim and
dive in a swamp in special
diving glasses, snorkels and
fin. The distance is 36.6
meters. People who win the
competition usually give all
the money for charity.
A STRAW BEAR

It is an old English tradition
which is held on January, 7.
People believe that a new
agricultural year begins this
day. A man or a boy puts on
the straw suit, which covers
the whole body. A man goes
from house to house and
dances. He gets money, food
or beer in award for his
dance.
CATCHING WORMS

People come and catch worms.
Somebody prepares a bait for fish. But
there are people that which consider it
some kind of sport. The origin of such
competition is connected with a name
of the local resident Tom Shaflbot who
has caught on July 5, 1980 511
worms for half an hour. At this
competition there are 18 rules. Here
some of them. Each participant has an
area of the earth of 3*3 m. For
capture of worms it is possible to use
music. Drugs are forbidden, as well as
water which is considered a stimulator.
THE MORRIS DANCE

It is a form of English
dance accompanied by
music. Only men take part
in this dance. The tradition
began in the end of 14
century and still exists.
Men usually wear medieval
clothes with bells and
graggers and boots with
wooden soles. People
believe that Morris Dance
makes them lucky.
TO POSE FACES

This
competition
includes
ability of a rubber face.
Opponents put on a horse
collar and pull the ugliest faces
of which they are only capable.
Certainly, in it a certain talent is
necessary,
but
it
isn't
necessary to underestimate
force of beer and degree of
lack of teeth. Sometimes
celebrities also participate in
competition
that
adds
popularity show.
