Show report: The Angel Canal Festival

Possibly my favourite show of the year. this year was our third outing to the Angel Canal Festival, and the 20th year the Festival has happened.

The first Sunday in September, the towpath at the Angel is lined with stalls. There are boat rides and canoes to try, second-hand books, food and other things. Including Morris of course.

This year, London Pride were upstaged young Bollywood dancers, the excellent continental busking of the Tragic Roundabout and, as you can see, cute baby owls. Despite that, we did our bit, performing three shows, at two spots either end of the festival.

Apart from the owls, the highlight was the encouraging audience. Some of them were ready to join in, especially some of the smaller ones who wandered in when they felt like it.
