That’s May ticked off the list already!  An early start for May Day, an evening out with Owlswick (and owl), the JMO in Leicester, the Towersey celebrations with a Routemaster bus with lots of rain and of course, the annual migration to the Yorkshire Dales with Leeds Morris.  A busy June and July to follow will see us out and about in the usual manner with a few private appearances thrown in for good measure.

So for June you can find us at:-


2 – 4 June            An appearance at the Thaxted meeting

6 June                   The George and Dragon, Quainton

13 June                 The Angler’s Retreat, Marsworth

17 June                 Armed Forces Day – TBD

20 June                 The Plough, Cadsden

27 June                 The Rose and Crown, Wingrave with guests – New Moon Morris.


There is an equally busy July but perhaps the important dates are not ours.  To give you a “heads-up”, on the 1st July, Abingdon’s Mr. Hemmings Traditional Morris Dancers have their Day of Dance as a walking tour of the town.  Starting at 10:30, the tour will visit all the points of interest in the town from the Town Hall to Ock Street. 

The annual St Michael’s Street Folk Festival starts at 7:15 – 11:00 p.m. on Wednesday 5th July in the city of St Alban’s.  There are lots of things going on and all are free to enjoy.  This will give you a taste in the wide variations of British Folk.  You only have to pay for your refreshments and food and there is plenty to try.  I park at the Westminster Lodge Leisure Centre and walk across Verulamium Park straight to St Michael’s Street. 

So we hope to see you out and about somewhere.  Come and have a go.  The full diary of our events can be found on our website or Google search the federations and see what else is going on out there.
