Shot on a whim using my mobile phone while on holiday in Longnor North Staffordshire. The Races is an annual event with a termendous heritage  the challenge cups were huge and encrusted with badges. I had no idea what to expect and the whole thing was running over an hour late. Those in the know had a good sense of the timescale and many folk were not there promptly at 11 am as we were! The music is the Hollingsclough Silver Band. We had seen them rehearsing in the street a couple of days earlier- which is when I recorded the music as at the event the silver band were playing in the beer tent!
