Havoc’s May Day outing was an evening event at The Punter on Osney Island. On arrival, things didn’t look good for an evening’s dancing.
We improvised, doing a few dances in a confined space inside the pub. Constant Billy was tricky enough, but we really felt the lack of room doing our audience participation dance, Sherherd’s Hey. This is usually done in a large circle. This evening was more a highly squashed oval.
Luckily the rain lifted enough to allow a couple of outside dances, before we called a halt to dancing for the evening and retreated back into The Punter for a long session of music and songs, accompanied by various other folky types still going from the morning.
Here we are doing ‘Vandals’ in the gloaming.
