A Pub is More Than Beer

It is a place for celebration, commiseration, to remember, to go to forget, to meet others, to talk and discuss. It is a community space.

The Crown Inn is also a place of tradition. Northwold's version of Plough Monday, for example, is unique. While other villages commemorate the first Monday after Twelfth Night, not every village enacts the same play or follows the same order of events. Mummers, molly dancers, the plough blessing and the dragging of a plough through the village streets are usually the norm. In Northwold we do these things in our our own particular way.

This year will be no exception. On Monday January 8th with our pub doors closed we will begin the procession at a different location. Soup and roll may or may not be provided. Despite the lack of a pub, Northwold is determined: The NSSC Committee have stepped up to the mark and will provide us with the celebratory communal space we need to gather in at the end of marking the passing of the Christmas season. Non-members are welcome and the bar will be open.

We all hope that 2018 will be a unique year for Northwold's Plough Monday and our tradition will return to The Crown for future events.
