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.

No matter if you have experience of dancing and playing the Morris or not, we always welcome new members, and will show you the basics and build it up from there. Continue reading
