Guilford Morris madness

I wonder if anyone got along to the Summerpole Celebration, Guilford today? I find it difficult to capture the whole dancing thing, hankies aloft. Still shots don't really give the right impression: So I concentrated on the characters.
Note the occasional "Tankard shot"

Mad Zebra thing. Dangerous when roused.



Enjoying the other team's mistakes.


Merlin turned up



So did King Arthur



Mr Bush. (You can call him Laurel)

Re: Guilford Morris madness

Looks like they were all real charcacters and you've made some delightful studies of them. Seems to have paid off ignoring the dancing and concentrating on the people.

This type of event is obviously a rich source of opportunity and there's a strong tradition of Morris Dancing at Thaxted, a village just 3 miles from where I live. Every year in late May or early June they stage a big event but there always seems to be some reason why I cannot go. Usually it clashes with a familly holiday but not this year, however my boss has asked me to work that day untill lunchtime. Nevermind, I thought, that still leaves me the rest of the day. Then we receive an invitation to the retirement party of a close friend, starting, you guessed it, early afternoon. Oh well, there's always next year!

Seeing your super shots has made me all the more determined that I will eventually get to a Morris Dancing event! I might have to Google to see what others are available.......familly and work permitting!

Yes exactly. Can you be done for "drunk in charge of a sword"?

Despite my reservations, it was a nice day out. Bells, beards, pewter tankards, real ale, walking bushes, snappy zebras and occasionally some dancing.

Cheers


Pete
