6 January 14:00-16:00
The story goes like this: During the 13th century, a gust of wind whipped the hood off of Lady de Mowbray. Farm workers chased & caught the hood. This so delighting her that she ordered the pursuit to be repeated.
The Haxey Hood is a traditional event in the parish of Haxey, focused on a contest in the village of Haxey in North Lincolnshire, England. On the afternoon of 6 January, the Twelfth Day of Christmas.
It is similar to a large rugby football scrum (called the sway) which pushes a leather tube (called the hood) to 1 of 4 pubs, where it remains until next year’s game.
