A POPULAR annual tradition will return to Ashbourne once again this year, as masters of the Four Shires bloodhounds confirmed their Boxing Day hunt will go ahead.
The meet will take place from the Market Place at 12pm on Boxing Day, and supporters are very welcome.
Visitors are asked to park in Shaw Croft car park.
The event is always well attended, with large numbers of well wishers gathering to see off the hounds, who will be heading out into the countryside to chase their human quarry across nearby fields.
The tradition has grown in popularity over the years.
For anyone wishing to join the hunt, the cap is £45 for adults and £35 for under 18s.
