The Pearly Kings Harvest Festival, 29 September

For something like the third year, we joined the Pearly Kings and Queens, along with a couple of other Morris dieds(and sundry other people) at their Harvest Festival, starting in the Guildhall Square. 

There  was a Pearly Taxi

The Kings and Queens of course

Here's our new dancer, Ruchard!

And we met the drummers from the Olympics opening ceremony

Wesley's Chapel, 11 September

We danced at Wesley's Chapel. This turned out to be for the World Methodist Council meeting. Delegates from more than 60 countries were being entertained with a "British" evening. We followed a piper, and entertained the delgates while they queued for  fish and chips in the churchyard.

We then moved inside for more of the same, with some of the delegates joining in. We also met the Mayor of Islington for the third time in the last fortnight.
No photos of us dancing as we were busy dancing. However, the Chapel does have a splendidly preserved Gentlemen's lavatory from 1899 by Thomas Crapper, so let's have a couple of photos of that... 

And finalllyl, our host, John Wesley himself. We danced close to his tomb, but we can assure you we were not actually dancing on his grave.

Gillespie Park 8 September

As usual, a lovely day at Gillespie Park. We danced at the children's area, looked at the stalls, and then did our usual "pop up" spot in the windmill field.... 

Here are two more photos form a batch of four posted by Judith Hibbert on the Gillespie Park Facebook page
