The Straw Bear of Whittlesey
The Straw Bear festival takes place on the second weekend of January, and is a revival of an old Fenland custom, which died out in the early twentieth century. A man or boy covered in straw would be led from house to house to dance for gifts of food, money or beer.
In modern times the Bear is led on a route around the town on the Saturday, accompanied by Morris dancers, sword dancers, clog dancers and various folk musicians.
