Barley Blogg... 2014 season
...or some of the things we have been up to recently
Holiday on the Isle of Wight, July 2014
Saturday 5th July
Sheringham - the Lobster Potty festival- a small side but a good day of dancing despite the weather being a bit dicey- the procession was rather blown along, and a huge downpour at lunchtime was the cue for an early lunch, but it then dried up allowing for some excellent dancing. Many sides present and lots of holidaymakers made for a really good atmosphere. Paul bought himself a new beer mug with a hole in the bottom, presumably a design feature to make you drink quicker.
Lifeboat Plain, Sheringham
Wednesday 25th June
The Ship, Dunwich- always a good place to be because you can dance in the road and not worry too much about being mown down by passing traffic (there usually isn't any in Dunwich!).
A small but enthusiastic audience for whom the highlight was not Grenocide but seeing Paul in a heap on the ground after attempting to twizzle the wrong way during the step up in St Helen's while dancing as a woman. I think he survived!
Wednesday 11th June
The Plough & Sail at Snape- we outnumbered the audience, and unusually had more men than women dancing- in fact could have done a dance for 8 men if not for Martyn's foot!
Sunday 8th June
Aldeburgh- hot weather, and a large audience enjoyed a joint display by BB and Pretty Grim
Saturday/Sunday 7th and 8th June
Our 25th Anniversary bash. There are two public dances over the weekend: 12pm on Saturday at The Griffin in Yoxford, and 12pm on Sunday at the Moot Hall, Aldeburgh where we will be joined by Pretty Grim.
Wednesday 28th May
The Sweffling White Horse. A good crowd of happy campers there to watch, and a good session in the pub afterwards. Thanks to Marie and Mark for their hospitality.
