September


The Abbots Bromley Horn Dance

1st Monday after 4 September - One of the oldest folk festivals in Britain. The dance involves six horn dancers equipped with reindeer horns painted white and brown, a Maid Marion, a boy armed with a bow and a hobby horse. The dancers make a 20-mile tour of the parish. The actual dance follows a snake like pattern, as the dancers intertwine with each other.

Gregorian Calendar Adopted

Michael Mass, St Michael's Day

29 September - One of the quarter days, and a celebration of the Archangel Michael.
