Subject: RE: Folklore: Epiphany! Should we be wassailing?
We the grimsby morris men are doing our bit to keep up the tradition.
Tommorow the 8th we go to a local allotment, shout at their trees put cider soaked toast on them to encourage the birds.
We then display our prowess at dancing before adjourning to a local pub and dance once more. We then peform a plough play.
The following week the 15th we go to a local cyder maker. Namely the Skidbrooke cider company in the great county of lincolnshire,
We arrive aprox 11am and was-hael the trees dance and try some of last years product.
Then we go to the nearest pub being the Prussian Queen at Saltfleetby
on the B1200.
We then dance and perform the plough play for the last time this year.
Then in Grimsby morrises usual style we try and empty the pub by singing, mainly drinking songs and having a few tunes played.
