Despite a cold, 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.

Places will be allocated in proportion 55% – 25% – 20% so there will be room for 33 Federation sides, 15 Morris Ring sides and 12 Open Morris sides.
What’s the programme?
Dancing in Cambridge during the day at a number of dance spots within walking distance. All get together briefly at the end of the afternoon for a very few massed dances and a few show dances from the young stars of the Morris. There will also be an opportunity to get together later for music, singing and socialising.
Each side is responsible for your own travel, accommodation and victualling so you manage all your own costs. Information on B&Bs, hotels, hostels, campsites etc., on rail links, park+ride etc. and on pubs etc. will be provided later to every side registered to attend. A page of the Cambridge MM website will soon be set up, dedicated to this day of dance and updated as more information is gathered.
At the moment, we should like you just to register your intention to come to the event – please let us know by the end of February at the latest, so that Cambridge MM can make the final arrangements with full knowledge of the number and styles of teams attending.
