I've had replies to this letting me know its Shrove Tuesday which might
be a stretch to count as the current season - but I may just stretch it.
My thinking with it is that "Chevy Chase" is used at the game, "The Lads
of Alnwick" take part in it and "Lamshaw's Fancy" could round out the
set as Lamshaw would once have led the procession from the Castle. A
trivia tie-in for young American school kids who won't know what the
hell I'm talking about is that many of them will , unknowingly, have
seen Alnwick Castle in the quiditch scenes of the Harry Potter films.
So is Shrove Tuesday wintery enough......
