Last spot: The Pickering Arms, Thelwall

Started the spot at "The Pick" with "Primrose and Blue"

"Banbury Bill" from Bampton, I think

Andrew with his monogrammed stick

Hunting over and can you spot the hatless Ian.

Ian travels from back (above) to front (below)

"Princess Royal" from Ducklington

Well, into Ring o'Bells it with sticks everywhere

A bit more ordered here - certainly caught the crowd's attention

Dance ends Sticks high, just need collecting, now...

...unsuspecting member of the public

The unusual occurence, these days, of Thelwall Morris Men dancing with two sets up for the last dance - "Bonny Green garters"
With the two musicians in the middle, the whole team is involved

Involving capering (or it should do)...
