The Loco on Hood Day
The Loco on Hood Day
Vast quantities of alcohol are consumed in Haxey every 6th January as the ancient ritual of the Haxey Hood takes place. Four pubs vie for possession of the Hood - here the Loco, about an hour before the fool's speech and about three hours before 'the sway'.
