Practices Start again next Tuesday!

We're starting our practices next Tuesday (18th September), and we're also going to have a session as an open evening on the 9th October with the idea of letting new people try it out together.

Any of you people out there who've always thought you might have a go  sometime - this is the ideal time to try!
Of course you'd also be welcome any other night (though we're having a half term on the 30th October)

We practice at Haverstock School on Haverstock Hill in Camden, close to Chalk farm tube station, we meet on Tuesdays at 7.30 to 9.30 with a musician practice from 7.

 Afterwards of course we go to the pub. we're still trying the local hostelries to decide which is our favourite

Angel Canal Festival, 2 September

The Angel Canal Festival - a regular and a favourite event. This time round we had an early start at 11, and danced at the pub, the Plaza and the towpath.

There were owls to see, as well as the Insect Circus Museum. The Pearly Jazzers and Tragic Roundabout were there as usual.

Another treat was a display of dancing with kayak paddles. After the girls from Islington Boat Club showed their stuff, we roped one of them in to perform Balance the Oar with paddles.

We're hoping for photos of the dance.

We had a good audience back at the Prince of Wales, and Kitty danced a double jig mufti, with Peter....

Phoenix Garden Agricultural Show and St Giles Fayre

1 September was St Giles' Day, and the fourth Phoenix Garden Agricultural Show, held in the community garden and the churchyard, at St Giles' Church, near Tottenham Court Road. It's our third time there.

There were farm animals, a Punch and Judy, and the lovely Crystal Palace Brass Band.

Half the audience knew Myrtle by name, and she got some left-over sausages.

 As often happens, photos are of jigs...
