The sound of bells and music was ringing through Adderbury once again on Saturday for this year’s Day of Dance.
The popular event, now in its 40th year, sees members of the village’s three morris teams gather at locations throughout the village, stopping off at each of its pubs to enjoy a day of song and dance.
Members from the Adderbury Morris Men, dressed in white with distinctive red and blue ribbons, began at the Old Wheatsheaf in the morning, with Brian Martin and Stephen Wass providing the music and Philip La Mare playing the fool.
They then stopped off at the Red Lion, The Coach and Horses, The Bell and the Old White Hart before finishing the day at Manor Road and Le Hall Place.
Adderbury Village Morris, looking equally colourful with their green braces and top hats and also enjoyed a day in good company reliving a historic village tradition dating back to the 17th Century. They started in St Mary’s Church before finishing at the Bell.
And Sharp and Blunt, a ladies’ team favouring the top hats as well, also enjoyed dancing through the village andconcluded their display at the Bell Inn themselves.
