Dancing out for old Saint George

Friday 21st April, & we were at ‘The Case Is Altered’ Eastcote, with Whitethorn Morris, & Merrydowners Morris, as part of a weekend in celebration of St. George’s Day.

A good evening with an eclectic mix of Morris styles. Phoenix offering dances from their (mostly) Cotswold repertoire, Whitethorn with their North West clog tradition & Merrydowners, who, like Phoenix are also Cotswold, but with a different range of dances.

The evening seemed to pass very quickly, and of course a good time had by all.

Sunday 23rd April on St. George’s Day itself, we were at the King’s Arms, Harefield, an event organised by Sharon, one of our dancers.

Unfortunately although we had the car park reserved for our dance area, the weather took a turn for the worse. However, Phoenix’s spirit was not dampened, and we did two spots inside the pub, albeit a bit of a squeeze, as the pub was packed. But at least we had a captive audience!

As an added surprise, the pub kindly rewarded us with a drink on the house and – most importantly – a £100 donation towards our annual charity collection. Thankyou!

Thanks again to Sharon for organising. (Better weather though next time, please!”)
