lots more info, especially this one.

Do check the video, if you haven't already.

Somewhat closer to (my) home: 1st (ever) Abbots Bromliad, on Monday.

Aah, down in London, not 'over the border' Southbank Middlesbrough :)

There's a fabulous collection of pictures from the event on flickr, here. (These are multiple photographers' uploads, unsorted, so ultimately there's certain amount of redundancy. But, somebody out there is a really great photographer.)

I only count about half a dozen sides represented there, though I didn't get through the full set of pics. Weren't there to be more?

Any first-hand reports?

Brilliant, exhilarating pictures! But like Becky says, in addition to Hammersmith and Mortimers, what other sides?

A couple of good articles, although with a few glitches in their numbers:

Before event: Thoroughly modern morris dancing - says "100 sides", when it was to be more like 100 side members

After event: 5000 Morris Dancers Light Up London's Southbank - relatively little focus on the actual morris dancers present, but good overall

Hopefully someone will have recorded the performance of the Morris On album - the BBC perhaps??

Looking for another free download are we?
No, it wasn't recorded. Sorry to spoil your fun.

And thanks to the links provided by Becky, I now know that the side dancing in corsets are Belles of London City - how different from the Beaux!

'how different from the Beaux!' - how much more refreshing and, when you examine the record, how very traditional!
