Friday night meal and informal dancing, singing and music around the pubs.

Saturday tours round the wonderful countryside that this part of Essex provides with a cooked lunch at one of the many real ale pubs that circle Thaxted.   We will even try our best to avoid Greene King pubs !!!

There will be the usual display in Town Street by the Guildhall following the procession from each end of town before we head off for the feast.   Because there is a second show in Town Street commencing at approx. 9:30 the speeches at the feast have to be restricted.   This second show will, as always, culminate in the Thaxted's version of the Abbots Bromley horn dance.

On Sunday we dance in the churchyard after the service and before a buffet lunch in Bolford Street Hall.

For those who do not have to rush home and wish to stay a little longer, there is morris and country dancing in Margaret Street Gardens just like there used to be in the vicarage many years ago.
