Haxey Hood Costume Donation

The museum was delighted to receive a rare gift this month. Dale Smith, who plays the role of the Fool in the annual Haxey Hood game and celebrations, has kindly donated his old Fool costume to the museum's collection. The museum would very much like to thank Dale and hope that future generations will be able to learn more of one of the country's oldest annual customs, once the museum is established.
