Bottle-kicking is an old Leicestershire custom that takes place in the village of Hallaton each Easter Monday.
Records of bottle-kicking date back to the 18th century, but the custom originates much earlier, from before the Christian era. Bottle-kicking has been an annual tradition for over 200 years.
The day ends usually with competitors and spectators retiring to the local pub for drinks and banter.
