Lords of the Ring

The Thaxted Morris Men are the oldest group of Morris dancers in the country, since the ancient tradition was revived almost a century ago. Part of a wider association, or "Ring" of Morris Dancers, their annual Ring Meeting, always held on the first weekend of June, attracts sides from all over England. Thaxted itself provides a picturesque, quintessentially English village backdrop to the proceedings and with the local side set to celebrate their centinary next year they really can claim to be Lords of the Ring.

Here are a few pictures from the Ring meeting held last weekend. It was a great opportunity to photograph various sides in action, each with their own distinctive costumes.












And there were plenty of chances to photograph some of the individual characters close up as they relaxed between the dances:-







Thanks for looking.

A great series of shots John. It's been a long time since I have seen this sort of entertainment and your portrait shots are particularly superb. Thank you for sharing
