Morris Dancers hit the Streets!

A last minute decision to visit Chorley in Lancashire led to a chance encounter with Morris dancers in the main shopping area. I shot about a dozen brief videos of the dancing but most were ruined by shoppers walking in front of the camera - it must be a local pastime!


  1. Great catch! Wd hate to see these folk dances fade away from disuse. Love the court jester avatar!

  2. Don't know if you caught the BBC 4 programme by the Unthanks about regional dances of which contained 2 Lancashire ones, there might have been another one, but I have forgotten where.

    and the Rushbearing weekend that has been revived.

    I was lucky enough to see Pace Eggers in Lancaster a few years ago, it was worth the wait.
