Freaks in the Peaks are a Border Morris side that meet up every 10-12 weeks for a weekend of Morris and ceilidh dancing, music, song....and fun!

The format of the weekend is quite simple: a hall is hired for the weekend that serves as a venue for teaching / learning dances & tunes. It's also used for indoor camping and as a general base for the weekend.

Friday night: Meet at the Spread Eagle pub in Lymm, Cheshire, for a bit of a sing, a play, a few beers and a damned good catch up.
Indoor camping for those that want to.

Saturday
Morning: Dance and tune workshop
Afternoon: Pedestrian tour of pubs and other dance venues around the village.
Evening: Communal meal followed be a ceilidh / morris dance.

Sunday
Morning: Walking tour of around 5 miles (in total) with plenty of dance stops / spots.
Lunchtime: Er, lunch break.
Afternoon: Continue the walking dance tour. Return to base to clear up and go home by around 4pm.

All jolly good fun!

Details are on the Freaks website

More info on my blog

So there you have it! Please come along if you're half interested. It's a very cheap weekend, a huge amount of fun.....and a terrific learning experience.

This is The Lymm Expedition....anyway, you can see the Peak District from Lymm.

Well you could if you stood on the humpty-back bridge.....and the weather is clear.

It sounds great fun, JJ and I'd love to be involved another time (currently nursing a bad back and a painful foot, so not travelling far.)

Hope you get a good crowd of Freaks joining you :)

Oh dear, I hope your aches & pains subside sooner rather than later. I don't know anything (!) about feet, but depending on your back problem I can thoroughly recommend Robin McKenzie's 'Treat Your Own Back', ISBN: 9780987650405....usually available in Smiths....or any good library!
