In Britain we have a rich heritage of traditional celebrations outside of mainstream culture.
Games and events that have evolved over the centuries through annual gatherings or get together’s of like minded people. Some of these have pagan origins, some have evolved just through the need to let ones hair down.
These events have usually been recorded in books but with the age of the internet there has been a revival of interest far beyond any localism . The Lewes Bonfire festival is especially popular. Other popular events include the Bacup Britannia Coco-Nut Dancers, Ashbourne football (not Match of the Day type football) Hinckley Bullockers and many more.
