You Should Be Dancing, Yeah

Last Weekend it was the annual Morris Ring meeting in Thaxted, just up the road from where I live and therefore a photo opportunity too good to miss. Here are a few shots from the Saturday.

Thumbs up Re: You Should Be Dancing, Yeah

Fabulous, I do like to see cheerful, summery 'cloggies' - they brighten up the place no end. The weather was kind enough for them too!

Lovely shots, all of them!

Lovely series of shots - our two local troupes had their annual bunfight one evening a couple of weeks ago, but I didn't share because the weather (and light) was appalling. I even got shots of them dancing in the Snug!

Really great shots which capture an old and popular tradition.

Guess I might be pushing fate by wondering how long it will be before some faceless bureaucrat decides that the sticks are dangerous and should be banned.
