(Not to be confused with the Kippax Rhubarb Festival)
The two neighbouring villages of Pomfrey and Kippax have, for many years, held rival events. The Pomfrey Liquorice Fair and the Kippax Rhubarb Festival.
At one time, rivalry was so intense that gangs of villagers invaded each others event and caused havoc and mayhem. As a consequence both events were banned by Lower Yonding County Council, but have recently been reinstated with several conditions and warnings of severe penalties.
Rivalry is now restricted to the Stool Ball field, as this falls outside the councils legitimate control. Injuries have been fewer of late, following the infamous "smash match" in which no-one was left standing.
On the day of the event, special constables (baring large clubs and furrowed brows) are drafted in from outside the area - even as far away as Tromheim - and piece usually ensues.
