Wakefield Morris Diary 2002


17th Dancing at the Blackamoor pub on the Borobridge to Ripon road. A spot at a folk club? Time? About 8.30pm.


6th Afternoon at Lotherton Hall.


3-6th Rochester Sweeps Festival. Thats in Kent for the geogrphically challenged. OK done that but we do not mention sticks or roof racks Ok!

17th The hired "turn" at a private event!


8th In Morley town centre 10am-3pm. This is getting to be a tradition!

*10th The Greyhound at Saxton - nice pub, nice people.

15th Invite to the Horbury Street Fair. But with only a week's notice we are unable to get a team out! Sorry folks.

*17th The Kings Arms on Heath Common.

21-23rd Weekend with the Fylde Coast Cloggers at Lytham St. Annes. Brilliant weekend! What lovely people.

#24th Practise night at the Brewers Pride Ossett. Team entry for the quiz?

28th Wakefield weekend of dance. Trip to York. Strange week-end as Golden Star could not make the date! So it's only one day. Maybe we can get Castleford Longsword to join us for a day out? Well we might have if we had followed up the original invitation.


#1st Practise night at the Brewers Pride Ossett.

6th In Matlock Bath with Mortimers Morris. Grand day out and if Zoe cares to check out the dance pages she might find the true reason for the capless caller in the Guisburn dance.

*8th The Anglers Retreat Wintersett. Another grand night out and hey advertising works. Two of the Mossley Morris men came over for the night.

10th Yes it's a Wednesday. An evening event to raise funds for the scouts going to Thailand for a jamboree. As one of them is "our William" it seems only the right thing to do.

13th Low Ackworth Gala 2.00pm - 3.30pm

14th St Ignatius Church Ossett. Wonder what time? Never mind we could not get a team out for this one.

#15th Practise night at the Brewers Pride Ossett. Nice to see Pete Woodward and Julie.

21st 2.00 - 4.00 pm. An afternoon at the boathouse Newmillerdam. Given the weather this should be a really nice do.

*23rd The Chequers at Ledsham.

#29th Practise night at the Brewers Pride Ossett.


Our apologies to all those who expected to see us at the Broadstairs Folk Festival. Just how we ended up in the programme we have yet to work out. We thought we had told the organisers we could not get there back in February! Investigations will be made! Hope that Terpsichore enjoyed the festival and thanks to them for stepping in to fill the gap we inadvertently created.

On our holidays.


13th-15th With Belfagan Morris in Cockermouth for their weekend of dance. Great weekend with some really nice people.

21st The Morris federation AGM event in Ripon. Will we be sending a team? No we didn't.


12th - Wrenthorpe Village Hall at a fund raiser for the Wakefield Hospice. Dancing at 1.30 and 2.30.

December 2002

26th Boxing Day at the Kings Arms, Heath Common. 12.30 pm. A damp day - but when we danced the weather definitely improved. Support your local dance team and we might get a decent summer.

# The Brewers Pride practice nights are informal. So we will NOT be in the full regalia. The aim is to have a relaxed evening brushing up on the finer points of the dance whilst enjoying a pleasant social evening and saving a few bob on the hall hire!
