We have stilton rolling which is as it says. Giant wheels of Stilton are rolled through a village.
Also a dragon boat race, where lots of vessels some hardly resembling boats are decorated and sailed along a river, most capsizing in hilarious ways.

I live in The Black Country and work at the Black Country Living Museum as a Victorian shopkeeper. Dudley is the centre of the Black Country and we have a long tradition of poetry and jokes told in dialect know as Aynuk and Ayli comedy I would love to take my daughter in law from Norwich to a local performance as she is fascinated when we ‘lapse’ into local dialect.
beautiful watch x
love the look and style of this fingers tightly crossed
This is beautiful
The only local tradition I can think of is everyone doing the conga around the clock tower on New Year’s eve and I join in with my husband and friends.

Always love a good old fashioned spot of Yorkshire Welly Wanging!
Richmond, North Yorkshire.
I love seeing poor old horse out in the streets at christmas. When they sing the song and dancing about. Xx
When I was young it was tradition to go to Pewsey carnival with the family. One year my sister won a fish and on the bus home the bag split and we were crawling under the seats to rescue it. It was always soup when we were back home and a promise that we would be allowed to go to the carnival the next year.
I am loving the owl watch it is fab.
PS The fish lived happily for a number of years
beautiful.Simple yet amazing design. Absolutely wonderful. Thank you ❤
The loony dook!
Cow-pat throwing is done in shropshire
Thanks for the great prize and competition. Good luck everyone!
Haggis hurling you have to stand on top of a whiskey barrel and hurl the haggis as far as you can. I think it was originally started as a joke but it is taken seriously and takes place at the Highland Games. Rules are the haggis has to be made traditionally, accuracy of the hurl, distance reached and the skin has to remain on it.
In my local city of Sunderland where I was born and bred we have a tradition of a Boxing Day Dip where you run into the freezing North Sea fully clothed or in fancy dress and try not to scream! :-) lol
Stunning watch x
I live in Willen Milton Keynes and we have a hospice here that has a yearly tradition called lights of love to remember everyone that has passed with putting a light on a tree.
Shows that Time is precious!
Super prize..Used to live near Bath, so it would be a great remembrance of times there for us.
Like other coastal areas the Boxing Day swim in the sea is quite popular but I can’t swim so have to miss out. (That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it)
This is a lovely classic watch that would look lovely in its owner
Apparently it was tradition in Chester that if you saw a Welsh person in the City you could kill them with a bow and arrow ! As you can imagine these days it doesn’t happen often and I won’t be joining in with anyone! !
A few miles away from the strove Tuesday football contest
They always do a Christmas swim in the sea for charity – I’d do that with my best friend Mary
Mari Lwyd with my partner. Beer, song and a horse skull.
I’m from near Liverpool, which home of the best comfort food ever… a pan of scouse, yummy!
I come from Sheffield and this would mean the world to my husband who loves the OWLS football.
In the next village to ours, every June they have a Soapbox Derby. Locals from villages around make go-carts out of recycled bits and pieces. The race is down the big hill in the village and quite dangerous. The tradition ends with a pint in the pub. I would love to do this race with my grandson.
No strange traditions unfortunately but I always visit Bath every Christmas love the markets x
In Essex The Maldon Mud Race is held every year and entrants complete a 500 metres race through thick mud over the bed of the River Blackwater. It used to be held in winter but now it’s held in Spring which makes it a little bit less arduous. If I was going to do it I would do it with my husband.
What an absolutely beautiful watch. As much as i’d love to give it to someone special for Christmas, I think i’d keep it for myself :)
I’m from the Cotswolds and cheese-rolling is our thing. Something to watch, though, not to do!!
I live in Hertfordshire and we have a charity (rubber) duck race every year, I would like to share the event with family, friends and neighbours
Windlesham have an annual Pram race on boxing day
we live in Cheshire and a local town Congleton holds an oatcake games in August. this is a tradition and includes throwing, tossing and races with the traditional oatcake. I would love to do this with my son. thanku so much for the chance to win such a gorgeous watch, something to treasure x
I was born in Eccles where Eccles Cakes originated. I’m not a very good cook so maybe a cake baking course with my other half would be a good idea!
In Largs we have an annual Viking festival with the burning of a Viking boat as 1263 was the last battle of the Vikings in Largs, Scotland
With my husband. Cutting a big pig approx 200kg to put it to smoke and the eating it.
I live on Barry Island in South Wales, where the New Year’s Day Swim has taken place for over 30 years, but I have never been brave to enter the freezing water! This year it will raise funds for Ty Hafan, the local children’s hospice and I’d like to enter with my lifelong friend Clare! (Though have yet to tell her!!)
I live in Stirling, Scotland. We have a tradition of going to the Big Switch on of the lights. It’s magical for our little one. Every year they pick a child to switch them on. Our son is still a bit young so hopefully he will get picked in a couple of years.
Stunning watch! I would love to own this ❤
The only tradition I can think of for my local area is everyone visiting 1 particular road in December for their amazing Christmas Light displays that they do for charity.
I live quite near to where the original Shrove Tuesday pancake race started (Olney)- so I’d like to enter that with my other half,
We live in a little rural market town, still very traditional with its ideas and ways, my husband enjoys following the tradition of shooting crows over the cemetery, preparing the village for Christmas lights, trimming hedges and bushes, without the council having to send people, the town people look after there own town
This is such a beautiful watch, I’d be so thrilled to win.
Lovely watch – linking Bath’s Roman Heritage with the brand’s symbol of Minerva
Beautiful design, sleek and stylish. It would make the most excellent early birthday present to myself!
daughter would love this
I love to go to The Isle Of Wight Garlic Festival, an annually held fundraising event, near Apse Heath, it has loads stallholders selling many locally produced foods such as garlic beer, garlic seafood and garlic ice cream. Music performances take place, and this year it was The Wurtzels, adding to the rural atmosphere! We always come away with something, whether it is local art or something tasty, that has been locally made or sourced!
its a Hoot
I live in the wonderful city Edinburgh . August is our festival month . Every year we have this huge Festival which is ful of entertainment , smiling faces. Lots of events are free and its just a joy to see everyone enjoying the city . Edinburgh at it’s best x
We don’t have any unusual traditions in Middx that I know of lol but I would make one up for this beautiful watch that I would share with my partner
Each year the World Conker Championships are held close to where I live. It’s a great day out and competitors come from all over to take part.
Ottery St. Mary has an annual Tar Barrel event – wouldn’t mind a go win my mate Colin Manning
It’s different, I like that.
lovely prize and would love to win
Super stylish! Love it!
A little bit of luxury that brings a lot of pleasure.
I am from the North East and we are well known for being so tough we go out in the snow with no coat on ! Noone respectable would go naked without a good watch on though !
Stunning watch, I’d be thrilled to win! thank you
Coal carrying race up north!
I love the sweeps festival in Rochester Kent which is on the May bank holiday, such good family fun. you can even join in the morris dancing.
Guaranteed to put a smile on any persons face.
Neat and compact
We have an amazing little village with lots of yearly traditions that appear on the local school green. These include a may fair and Christmas parade. My only worry is as there are more houses being built we lose the sense of a local community and what is bringing people to the area in the first place.
Thank you for the opportunity to win such an amazing prize
OWL – definitely the wise choice!
Where I am from originally in the North East we eat carlings with vinegar the Sunday before palm Sunday.They are a kind of pea and very moreish. i would love to eat them with my mother.
Gorgeous watch! I love it! And i’m in need of a new one!
The designs and colours are so elegant, I’d love to own one of these watches!
Stunning & very generous prize, thanks for the chance!
A great one to add to the collection of a watch fetishist!
A beautiful watch, and something to treasure. This would make a lovely gift for someone very special. Thank you
Gorgeous watch, i will keep my fingers crossed i get lucky.
Love this watch it’s very stylish.
Very stylish design!
Every year on the summer solstice the Leicester Morrismen gather on Bradgate Park in Leicestershire to see the sunrise.
This year i went with Heidi and next year we will be going again,hopefully with your lovely watch,very much required to keep on time.
I live on the Lincolnshire Wolds and we have loads of odd traditions here – the Belchford Downhill Challenge is one of the most hair raising – soap box carts pitching down a steep slope with no control whatsoever – or fear!!
Over two thousand Santa’s, elves and reindeer riding motorbikes through an otherwise quiet and uneventful market town, taking presents to give to Barnados. That’s our local tradition. It’s only 33 years old but I expect it will endure because, frankly, it’s genius. It picks up everything that’s brilliant about British traditions; slightly crazy, reliably entertaining and open to anyone (well, anyone with a motorbike and a costume). Families pour onto the streets to watch the bikes parade past. (It’s called the Reading Toy Run and it ends in my town, Wokingham.)

This would make a great gift – much appreciated.
In Oxford we have a crazy May Day morning.
Lovely watch. I’ve driven through Bath but never stopped.
LOVELY PRIZE <3
wow stunning watch my daughter would love this fab prize for xmas x
We have a Easter egg roll at our local park and I like to go there with my son.
Our village has a hotly contested annual scarecrow competition for charity over the August Bank Holiday.
Birmingham doesn’t have any traditions that are local that I know of but the city did start the customs of UK German Christmas markets and Balti curries
I like the design, apt and straightforward with style.
In Cornwall we have the famous ’Obby ’Oss celebrations in May, I would visit with my husband.
I come from Weymouth and every New year’s eve people travel from miles around for our Fancy Dress celebrations, if you’re out in Weymouth without dressing up you’re the odd one out
I’m afraid we are too old now for Cumberland & Westmoreland Wrestling,but I would love to give this fantastic watch to my husband on 7th March next year for our DIAMOND WEDDING, I think he deserves it!
WHAT A STUNNING WATCH
in aberystwyth its a tradition to walk the whole length of the promenade and you have to kick the bar at the end. I do this nearly everyday with my husband. we never tire of it. The only thing is our lovely dog who would come with us died last year and we really miss him so its not quite the same without him.
There is a Christmas Day swim where I am originally from, Skerries. On Christmas morning the whole town gathers after Mass (even if one hasn’t been), bundled up against the elements with a hot drink, to watch those brave enough to get in for the annual dip! Pretty much everyone has done it at some stage – either for themselves or for charity & it fosters a great sense of caraserie and Christmas spirit in the town! Once it’s all over people happily head home to have the Christmas lunch!
Great watch, ideal for every occasion.
What a fabulous watch. Would give it to my cousin who has been so supportive of me over the last couple of years when I’ve lost both my parents.
