Atherstone Ball Race


Atherstone is famous for the Ball Race which happens every Shrove Tuesday. 

A large ball is passed/thrown and tackled all the way down the main street. The ball was brought into Bracebridge today for residents to sign it so it is a lasting memory for the winner of the ball of all the locals that have touched and signed it.
