One of the staples of the Cry Havoc year is leading the parade at Levellers’ Day. This year Levellers’ Day was on a sunny Saturday May 17th.
The parade usually starts outside the church, passes through back streets and then down the hill on the main road, stopping the traffic. The closure this year of the usual venue, Wessex Hall, meant that this year we had to dance up the hill to the recreation ground by the A40. Once there, we danced in turns with the Vale Islanders.
Afterwards we retreated back down the hill to Burford High Street and the Cotswold Arms and enjoyed a little outdoor music session.
