Things to do in Abbots Bromley, Staffordshire


Abbot's Bromley, an attractive village south of Uttoxeter has an ancient church, and several typical, Staffordshire half timbered cottages.

It is famous for the Abbot's Bromley Horn Dance, a tradition going back to medieval times, performed annually in September. Twelve dancers and musicians, in Tudor costume perform the dance. Six men balance ancient reindeer antlers on their shoulders; a seventh rides a hobby-horse; and with them are a boy with a bow and arrow, a 'jester'; and a young girl. The dancers advance and retreat in stately fashion; an accordionist and a triangle player accompany the dance.
