Episode Summary

Despite a way of life that can often put them in conflict with the law, Gypsies and Travellers will always find a way to celebrate. In this episode, Irish Traveller Danielle is determined to live her life in a traditional way and, at just 15, is planning a lavish black pink and bling hen party. The only problem is her intended, 20 year old Brendan, is up in court on the same day. 8 year old Chloe's Mum has ordered a massive 'sticky out' dress for her daughter's communion. But there will be one person missing on her special day. Her dad is in Strangeways prison, but Chloe is determined he will get to see her in her dress. Ambrose is in training for a trap and horse road race to take place on the public highway. It's an age old gypsy tradition but its now against the law, and for the race to go ahead Ambrose will have to avoid the local constabulary. Up in Leeds 22 year old Mary and her fellow Irish Travellers have been kicked off their illegal site. Under cover of dark they race to find a new site before the police can stop them.moreless
