Ashbourne, a historic town in Derbyshire, England, is renowned for its annual Royal Shrovetide Football, a tradition dating back centuries. Each mid-late February, the bustling streets and fields fill with thousands of players and spectators, competing in this unique, two-day spectacle. This game separates locals into Up'ards and Down'ards, teams based on their proximity to the Henmore Brook, with the goal of scoring by hitting a specific millstone three times. Shrovetide Football combines aspects of rugby without setting defined rules or boundaries, making it a highly sought-after event by locals who cherish the rich history and sense of community it fosters.
