An Evening with Great Yorkshire Morris

In fact our friends in GYM recently invited us to join them on two occasions – In Centenary Square Bradford and in Silsden/Sutton.

Bradford – we enjoyed dancing in front of City Hall, amidst the lake and fountains.

Silsden/Sutton – we enjoyed dancing at pubs in the two locations, both called the Kings Arms – with the latter very kindly providing pie and peas at the end of the evening.

An Evening with Wayzgoose

We recently joined Wayzgoose for an evenings’s dancing at the Hop, Saltaire (formerly the Tramshed) – a good time was had by all.

Saltaire Day of Dance Workshop

We ran our regular workshop at the 16 May event at which we hope to give attendees a taste of what it’s like to morris dance. As usual, those who attended were enthusiastic, keen learners.

We hope to be participating in the October 2015 event.

14 June – Real Ale & Music Festival, Bay Horse Oxenhope

We spent a very enjoyable afternoon, safe from the heavy rain, in a huge marquee in the car park. We performed our programme, ending with a Festival Frollick, which we invited the audience to join in, and which seemed to go down very well.

Also performing were an excellent skiffle group and a Ukelele Orchestra from Haworth – fanstastic!

Given that we were given a free drink, delicious curry was on the menu and two of our dancers gave an impromptu performance (and not of morris dancing) when requested by the ukulele players, a good time was had by all!

2 – 3 May – Belfagen Weekend of Dance, Cockermouth

We were delighted to be invited to join Belfagen in Cockermouth, along with several other teams and to be part of the Cockermouth Georgian Fair, which included a musket firing display, sedan chair races, Cumberland wrestling and a costume procession! We enjoyed dancing around Cockermouth, the weather held out and a good time was had by all.

6 June – Kern Day of Dance, Durham

6 dancers, our musician and Ned, the dog, met up to dance in the morning in Millennium Square, along with other teams. After lunch in the John Duck we went to the Market Square and joined Kern Morris (our Durham host team). There was an appreciative audience and the day ended with dancing in the Palace Gardens in front of the awe inspiring Cathedral. Durham is such an interesting city to visit and we had chance to look around the old Market Hall, and see the quaint streets as we walked up to the cathedral chatting with other dancers. People were very friendly and a great day out was had by all.
