Description of the bank holiday in Worksop on the previous Monday (26th December.) The article relates that everything was very quiet in the town and includes the following sentence: "In Worksop there was not an attraction worth a rush, unless indeed we except a fight between two men in Carlton-road, a dog fight in the same spot a little later on, a second dog fight in Bridge Place, the march out of the Salvation Army, the mummers who went about, the old horse and the 'Owdtup', several bands of music, and a number of bands of singers"
