Peterborough Morris Cathedral City Day Ring Meeting (Postponed from 2020)

Peterborough Morris Cathedral City Day Ring Meeting (Postponed from 2020)

Event date: 
Saturday, September 25, 2021 -
09:00 to 23:00

Early arrivers can meet for breakfast at the Draper's Arms. Then it's a walking tour of the ancient and modern city centre.

There will be dance spots in the recently modernised Cathedral Square (with the Guildhall as a backdrop), St John's Square (next to the city's 11thcentury parish church), outside the 1930s Town Hall, and inside the Cathedral precinct. For lunch there is a wide choice of food outlets, cafes and bars.

After dancing the feast will be held in the magnificent interior of the 12th-century Norman cathedral. The dining tables will be situated in or near the crossing, with views of the hand-painted 13th-century wooden ceiling, and the tomb's of Katherine of Aragon and Mary Queen of Scots nearby. There is no limit to the number of sides coming for the dancing, but the feast is limited to 100. The expected cost for those coming to the feast is £50. They will also be inviting local non-Ring sides to the whole day.

They are looking into the possibility of indoor camping on the Saturday night.

Sides wishing to attend this Ring Meeting should please email the bagman [at] themorrisring [dot] org (subject: Peterborough%20Ring%20Meeting) (Ring Bagman) with a best estimate of the number of attendees as soon as possible.
