Saturday, 7th June – Kern Morris Day of Dance, Durham


We are really enjoying dancing out this season, despite the dreadful weather.  Of the five dance outs completed so far – none have been rain free but all have been extremely enjoyable.  We’ve managed to dodge the showers and have danced inside pubs etc.  We’re looking forward to experiencing at least one “dry” performance (as in rain free, not beer, wine …!)

Settle Folk Gathering, Saturday, 2nd September 2017

We had a fantastic day at the Settle Folk Gathering, dancing with our hosts Flagcrackers of Craven, and fellow guest teams Buttercross Belles, Crook Morris and YonLot in the Market Square.  The weather was very kind to us and we were received most enthusiastically by large crowds.  We were also given the opportunity to perform a dance, Laughing Boy, in Victoria Hall in front of Mike Harding and an appreciative audience.

A great time was had by all!

Amounderness Ladies Morris Day of Dance, Chorley

Amounderness Ladies Morris Day of Dance, Chorley

We had a great day in Chorley, as guests of Amounderness Ladies Morris.  We joined 11 other teams to dance in the centre of town in our new kit and on our new boards.  We received many compliments about our dresses and Mac, who has done a fantastic job in making the boards, was congratulated by many of the teams on his fantastic workmanship.  They were a pleasure to dance on.

Thanks to Amounderness Ladies for their wonderful hospitality – lots of refreshments (including huge sandwiches at lunch time) kept us going throughout the day, with lovely cakes on offer at the finish of dancing.

The fantastic weather completed a day to remember.
