Boxing Day 2011
The Bullring, Thaxted
It isn't any wonder that after the probable excess of Christmas dinner, the Morris Men were dancing it off on Boxing Day!
The traditional Boxing Day gathering at the Bullring in Thaxted took place in glorious sunshine. It was even mild enough for the crowd to be treated to a handful of dances, unlike some years when it has been two brisk dances only, and a quick retreat to pub for a reviving pint.
This Side of Morris dancers clearly take men on early, although I expect the pint will remain behind the bar, for the time being, for one pint-sized dancer.
