We had a great time at this annual event – part of St Albans Folk Festival. Thanks to Trevor for all of his work organising the evening and to everyone else who made it so enjoyable.
Humid doesn’t quite do it justice, but where better to be on such a warm night than the Woodman at Wild Hill.
We were joined by our friends from Etcetera Morris Men and a small but enthusiastic audience.
We had a good evening in Redbourn on Monday, dancing first at The Cricketers and then for an appreciative audience at The Holly Bush, where two sticks were broken – some of our dancers don’t know their own strength!
Here is a short video of us, dancing Vandals, as part of the massed dance in Trafalgar Square during Westminster Morris Men’s Day of Dance.
We had a good sized side dancing out in Sandridge last night with a warm welcome from the new landlord of The Green Man as we danced into the gathering dusk…
St Albans Morris headed off for central London on Saturday, 11th May as guests of Westminster Morris Men for their day of dance.
Neither hail nor rain could not dampen our spirits as we danced the sights of the city with friends from Westminster and Hartely Morris Men and Camden Clog, wowing the crowds wherever we went with our enthusiasm and fleet-footed dancing, including massed dances in Trafalgar Square.
Thankfully, the sun eventually shone, giving us the chance to dance in the early evening warmth in front of the National Gallery.
We had a great time dancing on the early May Bank Holiday at Standalone Farm in Letchworth Garden City. It was good to see so many little farmers and their families joining in!
