Dating back to the 14th century, this event takes place on 6th January each year in North Lincolnshire.

Unsurprisingly, it involves pubs, four of them, and there's a 'hood' which is pushed or pulled in a sort of rugby scrum by the locals to one of the pubs, where it stays until next year.

If you have been to this event in the past please review it for us here
