TRADITION takes centre stage in Moulton on Saturday when the fearsome Moulton Crows re-enact their historic dance for the crowds at the annual Crow Fair.
The bizarre dance featuring local men dressed in black crow suits dates back 80 year although some believe it has its roots in much earlier times.
Back in their heyday the crows were a popular sight at carnivals and fetes across the county, but became of a victim of their own success – getting banned from events for winning all the prizes.
Though it fell by the wayside in the 1970s, many villagers remembered the dance with pride and popular demand saw the crows reformed three years ago.
The fair is held on the playing field at the rear of the war memorial and starts at 1.30pm with the crow dance at 3pm.
There will be music from Sale Brass Band.
