People young and old brought to life a well-established tradition on Saturday at Adderbury’s Day of Dance.
Members of the Adderbury Morris Men and Adderbury Village Morris Men groups were joined by the ladies team Sharp and Blunt as they all enjoyed putting on a spectacle of song and dance across the village. Stephen Wass, principal musician with the Adderbury Morris Men, said: “There is always a good atmosphere when this event comes around each year because it is very traditional. Many old friends return to the village and those who we haven’t seen in a while.
“It is very much a part of our identity. Morris dancing in the village dates back to the 16th Century and what is remarkable is that there were several sets of fathers and sons out dancing together this year.”
The annual dancing day celebrates its 40th anniversary next year.
As part of this year’s event, the two teams stopped off at The Coach and Horses, The Red Lion and The Bell Inn.
As well as the singing and dancing, there was a selection of children’s activities and charity stalls on the Green throughout the day. A raffle also helped raise funds for Katharine House Hospice.
