Dancing May Day evening

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.
