Helen Strudwick of Devil's Dyke MM and The Fitzwilliam Museum arranged for a combined show of DDMM and CMM in front of an early 17th century painting showing a Morris side dancing beside the Thames opposite Richmond Castle. The painting had been in Lord Fitzwilliam's collection, donated to Cambridge University 200 years ago as the foundation of the museum.
Looking forward to next Friday, buy
Five Cambridge men as well as six honorary members wearing other kit traveled to London city centre on the second roasting hot day this year to dance with men from eleven sides including Thaxted, salve St. Albans, Anker, Jockey, North British and our hosts, the Westminster Morris Men. We danced near Westminster Abbey, the houses of parliament, some excellent old pubs and the Thames. Both the morning and afternoon tours ended up with massed shows in Trafalgar Square. Thanks to Dave Brewster, Danny Gallagher, Emma and Jon Melville for providing us with fine, uplifting music.
We are sorry to announce that Kay died following a long illness. He will be sorely missed as a kind companion, visit
Despite a cold, drugs wet day over most of East Anglia we enjoyed fine weather and the excellent dancing of sixty visiting sides from The Morris Federation, The Morris Ring and Open Morris. Many brilliant photographs were taken and links or actual pictures will be posted here very soon.
