The National Morris Dancing Weekend (Evesham)

We had a lovely but very rainy time at the Vale of Evesham National Morris Weekend in June, camping at the Rowing Club by the river Avon. On the Saturday we were taken on a tour with other teams to the Fleece Inn in Bretforton, where a barn acted as a welcome shelter from the torrential rain! Some of us dried off later at the Rowing Club ceilidh, while others went to the music session back at the Fleece Inn. On the Sunday we were part of a procession from Abbey Gardens to Market Square, where each side danced before the winner of the prized Evesham Stick was announced. Pecsaetan did not win but NYFTE’s victory was well deserved! All in all we had a great weekend despite the downpours.
