Burford Levellers Day

‘Be there at 10’ – wouldn’t want to be late for the 1130 start!  There’s Morris time – at least 10 minutes late – and a new low in time keeping – Leveller’s Time!

On a glorious sunny May morning the Havocs take to the streets – great to dance to rousing cheers and applause and great to see so many double sets!
