The Game of Haxey Hood (1929) | BFI National Archive

In North Lincolnshire we witness the game of Haxey Hood, in which the villagers of Haxey and Westwoodside tussle with one another whilst pursuing the 'hood', originally a hat worn by Lady de Mowbray, which got blown off in a gust of wind whilst she was out riding. To the Lady's delight it was rescued by the villagers and has been celebrated by replaying this game every year since. Who says village life is boring! (Laraine Porter)

All titles on the BFI Films channel are preserved in the vast collections of the BFI National Archive. To find out more about the Archive visit

Haxey Hood 2011 - Look North report

Dodgy picture quality with some problems with sound - but you get the jist. Non-yokels should look out for:
- celebrity interviews with (Jules' sister) Angie and (brother-in-law) Kev
- pictures of me shoving in the sway, sporting my magnificent holiday beard
- pictures of Jules' parents' pub - the legendary (and victorious!) Carps.
