Just seen Wayzgoose Morris appearing on Flog It on BBC2 (I'm sure you'll be able to see it using BBC iplayer). They were great! All that colour on the screen and with the history for about 6 or 7 minutes - This is exactly the coverage we need. Well done chaps and chapesses!

Had to laugh at Paul Martin attempting to play along on the Drums.

Loved the hats folks

The bit of archive film before Wayzgoose are introduced is from the start of the Nine Daies Wonder (London to Norwich Morris Marathon)at London Guildhall in 1977. I can just about recognise myself in the distance!

Much more clearly to be seen is respected folklorist Roy Judge (author of "Jack in the Green" and now sadly departed)at 19:32 (in London Pride kit), dancing opposite a Wheatsheaf man.

The dance I believe is 'Twiglet', again I think it originated with the late Wicked Stix in Sheffield. Sorry if I'm wrong, willing to be corrected!

Hells Bells! I clicked the 'submit' just as I heard her say 'the dance is Twiglet...'

Had to laugh at Paul Martin attempting to play along on the Drums.

Paul Martin is actually an accomplished drummer, as was demonstrated in another "Flog It" programme where there was a feature on a drum-maker using very original methods of manufacture. However, he probably wasn't familiar with what was needed for the Morris. :-)

Glad you said that Will - I thought he rather looked the part.

This was a lot of fun for everyone - although a lot of the people shown in the programme are no longer members of the side and after being Squire for 10 years I have now left to concenrate on a musical career as part of Strid, working with the musician Simon Allan, to whom I am now married.
The dance is indeed, Twiglet, which we originally learnt from Wicked Styx and added a few bits of our own.I am the one who did the interview, and I have to say Paul was very professional (& yes he was a session drummer in his former life). The side is still active I understand, although I hear not travelling around the country as much as we used to.
It is lovely to read all the positive feedback, I will pass it on the old side side.
