Boxing Day at Willaston
Today was sunny, bright and cold, so I wrapped up well to go to Willaston to watch Mersey Morris Men. Driving into Willaston, I got a sense of deja vu - I did a kimono talk there several years ago, at the hall behind the dancers in the photos.
More fun than battling through the Boxing Day sales!
Border Morris stick dance - sorry, can't remember which one!
Mockbeggar Morris are a North West Morris side from Willaston -
Molly dancing, a tradition from East Anglia, also by Mersey Morris Men - see video clip here (someone got that up on youtube very quickly!)
Glyn managed to take a photo across the dance, with me in the middle, snapping the last few photos - I'm hiding behind the camera, kneeling down & wearing a wooly hat with "ears" (it was so cold!) They are dancing out on New Year's Day, at the Plasterer's Arms in Hoylake, from 12 noon onwards. See you there?
