Welcome to our 2016/17 Programme.
In what seems like a mere fleeting moment our 2016/17 practice season is nearly over…our last session is this Thursday April 27th from 8 till 9.30 at the Abbeyfield Community Centre…we will repair afterwards to the Corner Cupboard for our monthly singaround.
We then have the wonderful Upton Folk Festival on Sunday April 30th, where we will be dancing from 12 noon in the procession through the town…followed by a spot in the ‘arena’ by the river, the time to be confirmed. Upton is a wonderful event, all the Morris dancing is around the pubs and river side environs and totally free to watch.
Then the Morris year officially is ‘kicked off’ so to speak on the next morning at dawn (about 5.20/25) on May Day…we will be up and dancing as the sun rises on Cleeve Hill…park at the golf club and follow your eyes and ears…we will be at the nearest high and flat-enough-to-dance-on spot! If the weather is kind we’ll be there for a while…if it’s cold and horrible then we won’t stay so long… But come along to support this old Morris tradition you’ll be very welcome.
