The weather forecast for our visit to the Chippenham Folk Festival on May 24th had not been good, and for once the weather delivered on the Met Office’s promise. We got rained on.
We kicked off at the Rose and Crown. It wasn’t particularly dry outside, so we danced inside. Dorset Buttons Rapper were sensibly of the same mind.
The low beams gave our esteemed Squire a little cause for concern.
Some others didn’t notice the problem.
Next stop was the lower end of the High Street, with Cornwalls’ very own Wreckers Border Morris. We got away with a light soaking for our first dance, but for the second dance had to resort to the infamous Sidesteps with Umbrellas.
The Parade down the High Street was threatened with rain that thankfully didn’t materialise. And by the time we turned up for our last spot with Ditchling Morris and Winchester the sun had positively started shining.
