Upton Folk Festival by Catherine Evans :: 03rd May 2009

Had a fantastic day today at Upton Folk Festival – this is an annual event, attracting Morris sides from all over the Country and even a side from British Columbia were dancing today. The day starts with a procession through the town then we dance outside the pubs along the river front. Everyone gets a ‘spot’ where they can showcase their best dances – we did Pipers Ash, Lancaster and Royton. By the end of the day we are all exhausted but happy!
