Clog Dancers

Coming home tonight, after three muddy days at a festival of World Music , I was suprised to find 'world music' happening in the courtyard of the Kings Head and Bell in Abingdon.

There were a group of north country clog dancers called 'The Old Speckled Hen North West Morris Dancers'. There were also a group of belly dancers in the pub courtyard.

The clog dancers hadn't come down from Lancashire, nor were the belly dancers Turkish.

The clog dancers said they practice at the Milton Heights Community Centre from September to April at 8 pm, and would welcome new members. The belly dancers meet at the Abingdon Dance Studio off Swinburne Road.
