Straw Bear Festival, Whittlesea 13th, 14th & 15th January 2017.
In Whittlesea it was the custom on the Tuesday following Plough Monday (the 1st Monday after Twelfth Night) to dress one of the confraternity of the plough in straw and call him a ‘Straw Bear’.
The tradition was revived in the 1980’s and this years’ Straw Bear Festival promises to be a great occasion.
To celebrate, Elgood’s has produced our own ‘Straw Beer’ a light, golden ale, well hopped with a full refreshing flavour.
