The programme:

The weekend format is the same as it has been for the last 90 years and is a men only weekend. Informal dancing Friday evening followed by singing and music in in the Maypole or Star. The Swan is for those who prefer a quieter night.

Coach tour on the Saturday with a hot meal at the lunch time pub on your tour. An evening feast sandwiched in between two evening massed shows in Town Street – which is closed to traffic – culminating with the Abbots Bromley Horn Dance.

On Sunday, there is the usual church service followed by dancing in the churchyard, before retiring to Bolford Street Hall for a substantial buffet lunch, and to finish off the beer, should there be any left after the feast.
