We’ve been so busy recently that we have a bit of a bloggers backlog! (Not as unpleasant as it sounds!)
Back at the beginning of July, Phoenix were lucky enough to be invited on another weekend of dance hosted by the lovely Rose & Castle and Queens Oak Morris sides. As ever it was a fantastic event complete with camping, food and an evening ceilidh. Despite the heat we danced our socks off and had a great time.
The weekend was closely followed by St Michael’s evening in St Albans the following Wednesday. As always it was a chaotic cacophony of Morris down the street – great fun!
Last weekend, Phoenix hosted our own day of dance at the 6th annual Rickmansworth Folk Festival. We were joined by our friends Whitethorn Morris, Merrydowners Morris and Wicket Brood for a number of spots around town, culminating in a mass Poppleton stick with Merrydowners and a mass Worcester monkey with Wicket Brood (And one member of Whitethorn). The dancing was of course followed by tea and cake for everyone.
The day was a big success and we want to thank our guest sides for coming along and putting on such a great show.
Finally, on Sunday we attended an event at Rickmansworth Masonic school. Another lovely afternoon!
