Witness this time-honoured tradition as the teams pull against each other from opposite sides of the River Nidd.  Drinkers of the Half Moon pub on one side of the River Nidd, and those of Mother Shipton's Inn on the other, 'heave-ho' in the hopes of pulling each other into the water in this annual Knaresborough event.


The competition begins at 12noon, with men's and women's teams competing.  Get your boots on and head down to Low Bridge in Knaresborough on Boxing day and get ready to pick a side and cheer!
