Cult Experience 2 & 3, 'Obby 'Oss' and Furry Dances

Cult Experience 2
Name: ’Obby ’Oss Day
Place: Padstow, Cornwall
Plot: Pamplona bull running meets Tellytubbies. The blue ’oss and red ’oss are released from their stables and teased around a maypole to the tune of a hypnotic folk song. The town dress in white and the streets go flag crazy.

Cult Experience 3
Name: Flora Day and The Furry Dance (pictured)
Place: Helston, Cornwall
Plot: Town smothers itself in bluebells and gorse as adults dress up in top hats and lace gowns and dance with 1,000 children in and out of houses, while dragons wrestle and the town band bellows out that tune that Wogan stole.
