12:00 noon Sunday 18th September - Outside the White Lion
Westrefelda is a mixed Morris team from Westerfield in Suffolk. Most of the dances you will see us perform today come from the villages around Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire & Northamptonshire which is why this style of Morris dancing is known as ‘Cotswold Morris’. We dance with sticks and hankies and wear bells on our knees allegedly to wake up the earth when we stomp around, so don’t try to sleep when we are about…
We really hope you enjoy our performance and if you fancy trying your hand at this quintessentially English dance just stick around…. we may just ask for volunteers!
