The Summer Solstice will soon be upon us so that can only mean one thing….The Nocturnal Teacake.
We’ll be leaving the Teacake meet at 7pm on Friday (16th) and heading towards Eyam stocks to indulge in our ancient ritual….. The Chalice Competition.
The drinking vessels are getting wackier and more creative every year but there is no simple equation you can follow to get your name in the history books as you will be judged by the infamous Rutland clap-o-meter much hated by the residents of Eyam Village.
Last year’s competition was won by a real gold whisky vessel followed by half a tennis ball in second place.
We’ll then head to the Barrel for a quick pint and then back to the Norfolk Arms for the usual pint and a butty.
Please let Brendon know if you’re coming before Thursday lunch please.
