A Scratch Havoc at Towersey Folk Festival

There were just enough Havocs floating around Towersey Folk Festival on Saturday August 23rd to make up a scratch side for a few dances outside the Three Horseshoes in response to an invitation from Owlswick Morris. Owswick and Havoc are both have their origins in Towersey Morris.

We did three dances, notably chiefly for Jim going horribly the wrong way when pressed into doing Sidesteps. Luckily further sides arrived and we retired thankfully.

It was all hands to the pump, and we didn’t get any pictures. So here instead is one of the other sides present, the recently formed Makeney Morris from around Belper, Derbyshire. They were rather good, especially considering most of them have been dancing for under a year.

And did you catch Nigel and Oliver on BBC Radio Oxford from the Festival on the morning of Sunday 24th?
