Cornucopia Winter Ale 2016

Monday’s not a usual evening for an ale, so it was a barely quorate Havoc – 4 dancers and 1 musician – that headed out to East Challow on Monday 21st March for what sounded like a low key Winter Ale hosted by Cornucopia Appachalatian Dance. Only a £1, snacks provided, bring your own drinks.

In fact, it was a very jolly evening. The promised snacks turned out to be considerably more substantial that we’d expected, and I have to mention a particularly fine ginger cake.

Unusually, dancing did not stop for food, so everyone ended up doing 5 dances. Luckily, we were joined by familiar faces from Icknield, Ridgeway Clog and , plus a side new to me at least, Garston Gallopers, so we got a fair break between dances.

With only four dancers, we had to adapt our dances down from the usual 6 or 8. In most cases this was straightforward, but a reduced Vandals of Hammerwich did require a careful run-through of the hay with coins on the table before we tried it. And, slightly surprisingly for all, it worked first time.

There being nobody spare from Havoc to hold a camera, you’ll just have make do with pictures of the other sides.
