That's the Tour de France speeding through Ainley Top, by the way

Marsden Imbolc Fire Festival - The procession en route to Tunnel End.
Thousands of people go to Marsden Imbolc Fire Festival, where no doubt they are bored stiff, of course.
More than 100,000 people went to Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival 2015 last year, which as we know was a complete letdown. I didn't have a good time at all. Honest.

2) Everyone is boring

Marsden Cuckoo festival is SO dull.
Jake Mangel-Wurzel - I bet he never said an interesting thing in his life.
Wilf Lunn only invents boring things, like this model bicycle called the Worm Eater.

3) There's Town and the Giants, but that's it for sport

Tyrone Nurse is ONLY the British Super-Lightweight boxing champion.
Ashley Flynn has ONLY scored a record number of goals for AFC Emley.
Swimmer Jonathan Booth is competing for Paralympics GB at Rio 2016. So?
Bodybuilder Sonia Armitage might be one of the UK's best in the sport - but who couldn't do that?
Olympic cyclist Ed Clancy shows his bike to children at Shelley First School. They look so unimpressed.

4) Nobody thinks of others
