Adderbury, 13 June 18

Squire John Ekers writes:

On a warm evening in June all three Adderbury Morris sides decided to get together and celebrate our different traditions outside local pubs for no particular reason other than our shared love of dance and camaraderie. Adderbury Village turned up in good numbers and kicked off proceedings in front of a discerning crowd at The Bell. Sharp & Blunt and Adderbury Morris began their evening later at The Red Lion and then joined us outside The Coach and Horses by the village green, before all three sides returned to The Bell to dance until dusk. AVMM were pleased to have the opportunity to showcase many of the dances they plan to perform on their forthcoming summer tour of the Somme battlefields in July.

AVMM also attempted to extend their unofficial world record attempt for the most dancers to perform Brighton Camp (24 dancers supported by 5 musicians). We danced for well over two hours maintaining a high standard throughout and although our oldest dancer on the night was ten times as old as our youngest, all the side performed with the same youthful vigour!
