The lads dance whilst...


...the music plays


Outside the "Old Guys Rule" shop on Watergate Street, a full frontal of the music men - scandalous

Round the corner and down Bridge Street


Ready to dance - a candid picture of the dancers - pretty sure none of them noticed


Swing backs in "The Vandals of Hammerwich"


Question, Which Tradition - A stick, but the answer, from the hankies blowing in the wind, is Oddington

Meanwhile, back at Chester Cross


Skirmish from Bledington - We know this from the skew- whiff set (wrt musicians) a feature of said dance

Bit of a walk now to the Albion Inn


Our famous "overheads" from Brain Testing 
in the style of Headington's Bean Setting
