Diary 2012

This is the 2012 diary for Winterbourn Down Border Morris. The status shows whether a commitment has been made to dance at the event. The comments are for any snippets about or after the event. Further information will be added as it becomes available.

We practise most Mondays; But in the summer we alternate practices in the village hall with practices at local pubs - a schedule is posted  below. Regular practices in All Saints Church Hall start again some time in September.

We are also on tour around the local pubs on summer Monday evenings. Generally we meet at 7.30 for an 8pm start, Morris time. Other Mondays, we're in the hall as usual


Is that a feather in your cap or are you just pleased to see me?

Er, what's the best cure for a hangover - a pint half empty or a pint half full?


Priston Folk Festival - 16th September 2012.

The side had an enjoyable day dancing with the host and other local sides at the successful folk festival at Priston. We were blessed with warm sunshine, good dancing and quality music making it the perfect activity for a late summer's afternoon.

Some of us even caught the eye of a local radio station and were interviewed by a big microphone!

Once again Winterbourne Down Border Morris were performing at The Medieval Barn’s Apple Day in Church Lane Winterbourne, and a great day was had by all. The sun shone for the whole afternoon and I am informed that thousands of people were counted through the gates .The barn was a hive of activity with not only apple pressing but all sorts of animals ,a very patient horse that stole many hearts, two pigs and a very chilled out owl who was not at all flustered but our banging sticks and loud noises.

Staple Hill

Christmas on the Hill went with a BANG this year! Never before have our dancers had to perform under gun fire, and a great job was done by all. Maybe next year we can dance before the Wild West comes to this ‘yer town!

Our smart turn out with festive embellishments looked good and the enthusiasm during all the dances made for great entertainment for the large crowd who came to enjoy the proceedings.

Where would the dancers be without our talented musicians!

The Christmas Boys & Boxing Day

The Mummer’s this years invited family’s in the village to have the play preformed in their own homes. We had three family’s take up the invite, and we raised £112.

Was it one of Alan's old flames?

No. It was the Olympic flame.
