Ashbourne Shrovetide

Heading off up to Ashbourne today to photograph the Royal Shrovetide, looks like a nice sunny afternoon is forecast.
If anyone does not know about Shrovetide I suggest you take a look at Shrovetide.net.

What is Shrovetide?


Ashbourne Royal Shrovetide Football is a game played in the Derbyshire town of Ashbourne every Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday. Unlike a conventional football match this game is played over two eight hour periods, the goals are 3miles apart and there are very few rules. As you may have already guessed, the game is infact nothing like a standard football match.
