Dancing in the October sunshine

Etcetera Morris Men made the most of a sunny autumn Sunday in Enfield yesterday, dancing out at two local institutions.

In the morning we joined in the fun at the Chickenshed Family Fun Day.  The sun shone on the 3km Fun Run (we thought it best not to take part in to save our energy for the dances) and stayed out for our display in the amphitheatre.  Many thanks to the team at the Chickenshed for the warm welcome – we’ve not been there before –  and for joining in with our traditional farewell dance.

In the autumn sunshine we then hot-footed it across the borough to Forty Hall Farm.

Another warm welcome was in store as we joined in the celebration of the harvest of apples (and more) at the annual Apple Fair.

Amongst the animals, story telling, games, juicing, blacksmith-ing, strolling and eating we danced in the main farmyard. Thanks again to the Farm and Capel Manor team for having us, and to all those who joined in with Bonny Green Garters at the end!  A great way to spend what may have been the last sunny weekend of the autumn.

That’s not all for this year though.  Keep an eye on the Diary page to find out where to see us next time, come along to the Etcetera Folk Country Dance session tonight or join in at a Morris practice!  New members are always welcome,  please do Contact Us for more information.
