At the Chippenham Folk Festival, teams are invited by Elderflower Morris to portray their interpretation of the little known "Stick and Bucket Dance", mentioned by author Terry Pratchett in his Discworld books.

For the third run of the contest, Terry Pratchett came in person to judge, and to present a trophy of a Golden Bucket which he had specially commissioned.
