Dunmow Flitch Trials

July 13

The Dunmow Flitch Trials™ exist to award a flitch of bacon to married couples from anywhere in the world, if they can satisfy the Judge and Jury of 6 maidens and 6 bachelors that in ‘twelvemonth and a day’, they have ‘not wisht themselves unmarried again’.

A reference to The Dunmow Flitch can even be found in The Wife of Bath’s Tale within Chaucer’s 14th century Canterbury Tales.

The Flitch Trials are held every 4 years in Great Dunmow, Essex.
