What do you do on Shrove Tuesday? Eat pancakes is probably the answer…. But not if you’re from Ashbourne, a small market town in the shire, where Shrove Tuesday marks the start of the two day Royal Shrovetide Football. It’s not a football game like you might imagine, firstly the goals are three miles part, rather than 11 players per team, it’s more like 500 and the match doesn’t last a mere 90 minutes, no, this game starts at 2pm each day and finishes when a goal is scored or at 10pm.
We are so excited about the electrifying Charge, from acclaimed Dance-Circus company Motionhouse, coming to the Buxton Opera House on March 16th (Friday) that we want to giveaway a pair of tickets to a lucky winner!
The ladies dressed up for Halloween last weekend to go see the Village Screen event of Hocus Pocus play at the Victoria Baths in Manchester. First of all, any chance we get to see a film in an alternate surrounding, the ladies are fast to organize a night out around it but this event in particular was so much fun we were all thrilled by the evening we’d had.
