St George's Day
April 23 2006
Hundon "Rose and Crown"
As befits a Very English Tradition, such as the Morris, St George's Day (known in Little Egypt as the "Saint's Day of Sin Jorg") has
come to be celebrated in typical Morris fashion, even though it falls before the traditional beginning of the Dancing Year (May 1)
We are no more self-conscious or apologetic about celebrating
this day than, say, the Irish on March 17,
the Scots on November 30, or the French on July 14.
This year's celebration took place at Hundon, at the "Rose and Crown". As will be seen, Little Egypt joined with several other sides to
acknowledge the day.
Although the weather was not as good as it might have been,
the beer was good (Ridleys via Bury St Edmunds, if such a travesty is possible) and the dancing was in keeping with the occasion.
As can be seen, the combined talents of Westrefelda, Green Dragon, Belchamp, the Harlots from Haverhill, as well as Little Egypt, served the day well.
As always, the orchestral manoeuvres went smoothly and were well attended.
Still to come:
- Rochester Sweeps
- May Dawn
- Cathar Country
(and why four men had to resort to hitching a ride):
