I qoute the above from your page
'- this isn't a soapbox for prejudice, personal abuse or private vendettas'
- I remember that old irish guy called John. He used to tell all the ladies they look like million dollars, lovely old chap. Hope he's still alive, used to live in Mytholmroyd in 2005
- Just visit the square, there will be someone rambling, dancing or making a noise there.
- on occasion one has the pleasure of being 'entertained' by the 'hand over his ear busking man' does anybody know for what reason this man sings in this strange and mystical manner? whats he doing in there? what goes on the mans ear? apparently there have been several sightings in other like minded towns......always with a red lumberjack shirt and bum bag.
- The infamous James Bragg does his Dylanish thing in St George's square
- all the greggs.
- All need to be shot. Far too many doped up, banjo players loitering in shop doorways, making the place look like a bus stop (or an over-spill from the Trades Club).
- Great arrays of various organised "entertainment" appear in the town square or alongside the river every now and again such as the dubious Morris Dancers. Hebden Bridges real entertainment comes from the random fire jugglers, buskers, bands and acrobats that appear without warning do something insane and dissapear again. Around easter, it really is worth going to one of the traditional Pace Egg plays, a hangover from the crusades, these are a very Un PC tale of St. George versus various arab princes etc. the real entertainment coming from the sheer drunkeness of the performers as the swing bits of cast Iron at each others heads, fall down drunk, and generally try their best to cope with the unpredictable Easter weather, expect snow torrential downpours and hailstones.
- on a saturday there are some weirdos in the summer
- look out for Sams' samba band!
