US FANS of the medieval Abbots Bromley folk dance will again be performing their own interpretation of the ritual – more than 5,000 miles away in Oakland, California.
An amateur dramatic society, known as the California Revels, will be hosting their sixth annual 'Abbots Bromliad'.
Using their own replicas of the ancient antlers, they will be imitating the original dance, which involves a team of 12 members, six of whom parade 10 miles through the streets, farms and pubs with horns.
More information about the spectacle is online at www.abbotsbromley.com/horn_dance
This year the date of the dance falls on September 8.
