After a summer off, Phoenix gathered once again for a weekend at Swanage folk festival.
Weather for Swanage can be a bit unpredictable but this year was ideal morris conditions – no rain and not too hot!
Phoenix put on a lively show as always at a variety of spots around town including a great performance of our dance Batchworth Stick at the Rowing Club.
On Saturday our day of dancing ended with the procession where the dancers were joined by their youngest member who at 7 months old was probably the youngest participant in this years procession and the only one to sleep through the whole thing!
On Sunday, phoenix ended the day by joining the ‘mass monkey’ then kicking off their shoes for the traditional dance in the sea which ended in chaos as our Foreman took a tumble, closely followed by the dancer who tried to help her up!
Overall a lovely weekend. Thanks to Basingclog, Marling morris, Exmoor morris and Rattan Hill who shared our spots and to the organisers for another great festival.
