East Lancashire Railway, Ramsbottom
31st August 2009

Billed as The Teddy Bear's Picnic, it started with a procession.

Passing under the trees the musicians are in shadow, but the dancers are very bright (but only with respect to lighting)

First dance in the "arena" was Step n Fetch Her (a dance from Bampton) - looking good with reasonably straight lines

Banbury Bill (another dance from Bampton) later and the sporting Lyn joined us

Looks happy enough

Is that a look of fear, surprise or joy?

On the train to Rawtenstall and a dance session on the platform, starting with a dance called "The Quaker"

The rain started, so the musicians took shelter in the guards van while the team danced on

A jolly good day had by all
