Rutland Morris are well under way with our Christmas programme. We have already danced at the Stamford Christmas Fair, and also at Christmas in Uppingham.
On Thursday December 13 we undertook our annual Christmas 'Mummers and Dance' tour, visiting The White Lion at Whissendine; The Wheatsheaf at Langham and the Grainstore at Oakham; we performed our world famous (well nearly) Mummers play at each (sometimes very crowded) venue.
In keeping with a forty year and more tradition we will also perform on Boxing Day, at the Horse & Jockey Manton at 11.00am, the Market Place in Uppingham at Noon, and the Crown in Uppingham at 1.00pm. All times are Morris approximates! As usual we will perform 'border dances' from the English - Welsh borders, and perform our Mummers play again, at which those regulars in the audience will be welcome to join in with the words, and don't worry … St George doesn't die!
Collections from these events will, as usual, go to a local Rutland charity.
