In this annual competition the ancient grudge between Yorkshire and Lancashire is played out again – this time by hurling Black Puddings at a pile of Yorkshire Puddings on a 20-foot high plinth. Competitors have three turns in an attempt to knock down as many Yorkshire Puddings as possible (they are arranged in a pile of a dozen) and must throw underarm from a purpose built stand called the oche .

The competition dates back to the 1980s but the Yorkshire-Lancashire rivalry is lost in the mists of time, and allegedly during the Wars of the Roses the two sides exchanged fire with foodstuffs when their ammunition ran out (if you believe that….). Expect a lively, fun atmosphere and hundreds of puddings!

If you’d prefer to eat rather than throw them, Black Puddings are on sale at the event. Anyone can have a go at the competition and the entry fee is £1 for 3 tries.

Car sharing available.
