Wet and wonderful Wimborne

Another most enjoyable weekend for Phoenix at Wimborne Festival 2019. It was good to catch up with our long distance members and see some different faces attending Wimborne for the first time this year. Luckily the rain kept away for the dancing both days.

Saturdays procession was a success and our spot in the Square was well danced, our Cotswold style making a good contrast with Mythago Border Morris. A lovely end to our first day.

Sunday also went well; we had fewer dancers, but standard was good. It was a pleasure to dance our first spot with Severn Champions Molly Dancers.

We had some positive comments about our dancing over the weekend.

As well as our performing we had some off duty sociable fun including a Side meal, Ceilidh dancing and some of us joining in the Fezheads evening entertainment. Thanks to our Squire we won the prize for collecting the most money over the weekend towards next years festival. All round a successful weekend!
