Good stuff but what about the annual horn dance as the most notable claim to fame?
Ooh I'm glad someone knows about that! The question we are most asked though is 'when is the school reopening' , I used to work there and it was very sad for everyone and looks challenging at the moment in these times.
As for the Horn Dance it got cancelled last year for the first time in hundreds of years: https://abbotsbromley.com/information/horn_dance/
It usually takes place in September so hopefully will get going again!

The Unthanks did a TV feature on it, a half dozen or so years back, otherwise it would have escaped my attention.

I've found quite a few that are reopening on my travels around the country.
Perhaps you could report on these?
Get ready for this great news.
Here it is:
It was sadly reported a number of months ago that the York R.I. Chess Club (which was situated next to York Railway Station at the Railway Institute) had lost their venue after many years.
Well, I am pleased to announce that the club has found a new venue, however the club night will change from a Tuesday to a Wednesday night.
They are hoping to open on Wednesday 23rd June.
This is the address:
Guppy's Enterprise Club,
17 Nunnery Lane,
