Dunmow Flitch Trials - a historic competition where married couples compete to win a 'flitch' of bacon - is seeking young people to join its 2024 jury.

The jury is traditionally made up of six maidens and six bachelors, who either come from Dunmow or the surrounding villages.

Jurors must be aged 18 to 25 on July 13, 2024, and must be unmarried with no children of their own.


Anyone interested is asked to email info@dunmowflitchtrials.co.uk, or get in touch via the Facebook page.

Those who are too old to sit on the jury are asked to invite their children, friends, grandchildren, nieces and nephews or friend's children who may be interested.

Married couples can apply for the Flitch Trials until February 14.
