A Hobby Horse Celebration for Minehead
Date: 30 April 20 — 04 May 19 | Report this event.
Entrance Price free Per person
Its origins lost in the distant past the Sailors Horse dances the streets of Minehead today as it has done for centuries. To the beat of the Drum and the zing of the Accordion it swings and swaggers through the town, flicking the air with its long tail, a bright shiver of ribbons and ostrich plumes, chasing the children, accosting the men and catching the women.
The Hobby Horse is still a vibrant part of the English traditional landscape. Long may it stalk the streets of Minehead on Mayday…
