Diary update

© Steve Archer 2013

It’s been a busy couple of months at practice since our New Year’s Day Spectacular at The Wonder, Enfield.  The Squire and Foreman have been putting us through our paces (and 1-2-3-hops) and picking up on those fine details to ensure we’re in tip top condition for the 2017 season.

The focus remains on dances from the villages of Fieldtown, Bampton and Adderbury, though there are a few other old favourites and well known dances in the mix. We even spent some time on jigs (solo dances – occasionally duets though, or even four-handed) this week.

With that, the Diary page has now been updated with all our practice season dates. Keep checking back in the next few weeks as we’re putting the finishing touches to our spring and summer dancing out programme.  You can also connect with us on Twitter and Facebook. Looking forward to a busy season of dancing!

Wassail for now!

New Year 2017 – Pratice Season resumes

New Year’s Day

We all had a  great time at the first New Year’s Day  Spectacular to be held at The Wonder in Enfield.  A good crowd formed, dances were danced both by your hosts – Enfield’s Etcetera Morris Men – and guests from Letchworth Morris Men and step cloggers who are part of Camden Clog. Before the first rain of the New Year made us all seek shelter in the pub for a session of music, song and more dance, there were two chances for the spectators to join in with an English Country dance and a Cotswold Morris dance.  A great day and our thanks to all who watched, danced and sang along, as well as to Janka and the team at The Wonder.

Practices – new members welcome!

After the fun of New Year’s Day dancing, and the first Etcetera Folk English Country Dancing session of 2017, the Morris Men’s practice season has picked up again. Continue reading

Thanks from Etcetera Morris to the team at Forty Hall Farm and Forty Hall Orchard as well as all those who watched and the intrepid few that joined in at the end!
