Those of you who have kindly followed my intermittent ramblings for a few years might remember that Richard and I have attended the Day of Dance a couple of times before. One of the local Molly dance sides (teams) wished to celebrate an important anniversary in 2015 so invited other Morris and Molly dance sides to join them in Halesworth for the day, as a one-off. This was so successful that the Day of Dance has taken place each year since then and it has grown! Not only Morris Dancers, Border Morris dancers and Molly Dancers take part but also steam punk sides have joined in, belly dancers, buskers and mummers! Please follow the links if you are interested in finding out about Mollys and Mummers!
Below is a slideshow of some photos I took on the day. The Morris side wearing blue and white is Rumburgh Morris, our local team who were featured in Episode 4 of Alice Robert’s series ‘Britain’s Most Historic Towns’.
Here is a very short video I took of one of the sides. I have no idea of their name or where they came from but I thought they were fun.
Here follows a video I found on Youtube of the procession round the town at the start of the day. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog!
