2018 News

Year 41 for BB and all is well with a busy programme to come! The first time we stepped beyond the confines of the Scout Hut though was for a Sunday practice in March at Vibez Dance Studios in Woodley, used in 2017 by the fragrant Debbie McGee when rehearsing for her Strictly Come Dancing appearances. Not sure we were as light footed in the Studios as she was, but bet she couldn't wield a coconut like BB can.

Our first proper outing of the year was on Sat 21st April at the Oxford Folk Festival, these days a traditional season opener. Once again the weather was mostly sunny, and we enjoyed a good day, starting in the Botanical Gardens and finishing in Bonn Square, with some Cornmarket appearances thrown in. Then on 10th May we had an evening at the Fisherman's Cottage, Reading, with Rockhopper and Windsor Morris, and with dancing on the canal towpath just outside the pub.

Next , a day in Brighton on Sat 19th May, as guests of Brighton Morris at their 50th Anniversary Day of Dance - a great chance to escape the Royal Wedding and FA Cup Final on the same day. 15 different sides took part altogether, and during the day we enjoyed the company of 7 Champions, Great Western, Hunters Moon, Cuckoo's Next and Rockhopper, plus all the other sides at the opening stand in Pavilion Gardens, and at the end of the day alongside the i360 on the Promenade. Another very sunny day and red faces all round at the end of it except Tom, who had spent the day shrouded in a ghostly mask of white sun tan lotion. But he wouldn't be hurting at work on Monday...
