Scrambling  

Every January, on the very first trading day of the New Year, the children of Driffield are treated to a barrage of sweets from the shopkeepers of the town. 
 
The tradition has been going for centuries, though in the old days the pennies were real currency rather than the chocolate coins and other confectionary which are thrown today. 
 
The tour of the town begins at the Railway Station, and the event lasts around an hour and a half with a rolling road closure scheme to ensure the safety of the party as it weaves its way around the streets.
