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. Apart from one or two outings and some private evening events with other dancing teams (Ales), we’ll be putting all out efforts into fine-tuning and polishing our dance and music repertoire ahead of the 2017 season. You can visit the Diary page to see dates and have a read of the Join In page if you would like to know more about dancing or playing music with us.
We’re already looking at how our summer programme is shaping up and there are some places we expect to return to this year. We’re looking forward in particular to a Morris tour in the picturesque Yorkshire Dales and to visits to some of our favourite pubs in and around the Enfield area.
