Yesterday I went on one of my more challenging fixed-wheel cycle rides around the hills of the North Downs. In the middle of the ride I made a scheduled stop in the Surrey-Kent border village of Tatsfield, where I knew that a bunch of Morris and clog dance sides would be appearing mid-afternoon, as part of a tour of pubs organised by Croydon’s world famous Northwood Morris.
By the time they arrived in a large coach and minibus, the dancers and musicians had been dancing and drinking solidly since nine in the morning, and by the looks of it were still going strong. I stayed in Tatsfield for an hour or thereabouts, and with my phone camera took a few pictures of the dancing, feeding and watering activity of the assembled fauna. I’m afraid I don’t have time to prepare a number of photos for posting here, as I have done for Morris events in years past, but here’s one to being going on with.
