RUSHBEARING, RUSHCARTS & PACE EGGING -TRADITIONS O’T’NORTH

July 1st at 18:30 to July 4th at 13:30

Rushbearing in the Lake Distict & the Rushcart in Lancs & West
Yorkshire originated as rituals with the practical aim of strewing the
church floors with rushes. We hope to visit the Ambleside Rushbearing
and Grasmere Church, location of another, with in-house talks which
will also feature the local Pace-Egging custom.
