As the distant thump of the V Festival reaches the house (and it's very hot, so the windows are open), I'm beginning to think that this event has probably now become a sort of local tradition. And we don't really have many of those in this part of the country, except there is one local tradition which has been around for centuries - the Dunmow Flitch Trials. I went to the last trials held a few weeks ago on 14th July.
|The jury of six maidens and six bachelors take the oath|
|First couple take the oath|
The next trials will be in 2016. The next V Festival will probably be this time next year!
